Re: UEB Braille code and restaurant menu inaccessibility

Hi,

Yah it was quite dismayed. I believe that this is wrong, I mean older
Braille readers, who have learned Braille as a kid, and have read
Braille that way for 20/30/40+ years the switch forces a new learning
or you can't use what was previously accessible and available. I would
have said something, but then I didn't think the manager would get the
new UEB vs I'll call it the proper Braille.

Thanks.
Dave.

Hi,

Looked like a mess of symbols.

There are some differences, but they are certainly still readable.

Subject: [TechTalk] UEB Braille code and restaurant menu
inaccessibility

Hello,

Last week I went with a group to a restaurant which I had been to
before and like going there due to their Braille menu I can choose my
own food without having to have someone read me the menu.

I discovered frankly to my consternation that they had updated their
menu and this new version used the new (well new to me) UEB Braille code
format.
I couldn't make heads or tails of it.

The purpose of this email is twofold: first, to express my
consternation at this turn which has made reading menu accessibility
go down? Second, to generate discussion, opinions, and any resolutions to
this issue.

I'd prefer not to have to unlearn x years of Braille reading.

Thanks.
Dave.
