Message from the President
By Natalie Martiniello, BLC President
Dear BLC friends,
Our Annual General Meeting is always so much more than a meeting. It is also an opportunity to catch up with old friends and meet new ones -- And this year was no exception! On behalf of the entire board, we were so thrilled to see those of you who could attend in person, and to hear from those who participated virtually with us through our Zoom distance platform. Much like in previous years, many of us went home feeling re-energized and excited about all that lies ahead of us in the next year -- and quite a bit lies ahead!
The 2019 AGM was held in the Novotel hotel in Toronto. Uniquely, this year, the AGM took place in conjunction with the semi-annual meeting of the Braille Authority of North America (BANA). There was lots of braille enthusiasm in that building, and several of us enjoyed sitting as observers. What an excellent reminder that all around us are people who are equally passionate and working hard on issues of importance to the ever-vibrant braille reading community!
For full details on all business matters arising from the Braille Literacy Canada AGM, I encourage you to refer to the documents sent to all members prior to our meeting, or to write to us if you have any additional questions: email@example.com
Edie Mourre Scholarship Recipients
This year, the Edie Mourre scholarship has been awarded to two deserving recipients and their names were announced during the AGM. Alexandra Palmer is an Educational Assistant who is pursuing braille certification to better support the children she serves within her schoolboard. Rebecca Curlew Is a classroom French teacher training to become a teacher of students with visual impairments who also strives to incorporate braille music within the piano lessons she offers to students. Congratulations to them both!
We were so thrilled to receive so many applications, and encourage everyone (including applicants from previous years who are interested) to reapply in future years. The next application period will open in January 2020.
2019 President's Award Recipient
The BLC President's Award was established last year to recognize and celebrate individuals within Canada who have made a significant contribution to the world of braille. This year, we were so honoured to grant this recognition to an individual who has not only devoted so much of her personal and professional energy to braille literacy, but who is also a dear friend to so many of us.
Dr. Myra Rodrigues is a longtime member of BLC, formerly the Canadian Braille Authority. In previous years, she served as the representative to CNIB on our board. Both on and off the board, Myra has gone above and beyond to find creative solutions to improve access to braille and energize future generations of braille readers within Canada. Once Unified English Braille (UEB) was officially adopted within Canada in 2010, she created and steered what became known as the "UEB parties". Often on her own dime, she would travel across the country to meet with braille readers -- both advanced and novice -- to teach them about UEB changes in a fun and informal setting. She created UEB party gift-bags, and these occasions were not merely opportunities to learn about UEB, but to celebrate braille and a shared love for literacy. These fabulous get-togethers also led several of those experiencing sight loss who had previously not been using braille to go on to learn it themselves. Ode to the motivation born from lots of friendship, fun and food - And more importantly, the inspiration that ignites when many braille readers of all levels come together to provide support, mentorship and enthusiasm!
Myra is also the co-Author of the textbook called Celebrating Braille: A Canadian Approach. This book is now used across the country to teach braille to adults with sight loss. Compiled to increase motivation for adult learners, it is written with Canadian spelling and vocabulary and is filled with unique references to the places, people and cultures of Canada. This is the first textbook of its kind, and will continue to be important as the prevalence of adults with sight loss continues to increase.
Myra is also the inspiration behind the very successful BLC Brailler Bounce initiative, which she has almost entirely steered on her own since its inception in 2015. A true testament to her creativity, it occurred to Myra one day that there were probably extra and unused braillers collecting dust in homes, offices and schools. Why not refurbish and rehome them to those who do not have access to these vital -- and timeless -- writing tools? Thus was born the Brailler Bounce Initiative, and the reason why Myra has had over 20 braillers in her house at one time waiting to be rehomed through this ingenious program. To date, we have already rehomed over 50 braillers to recipients across the country.
These are just some of Myra's braille-related accomplishments, but Myra is also a cherished friend to many of us. For those who have had the pleasure of knowing Myra, you will know that she is a positive, optimistic person -- Someone who believes in the possibility that is born with a whole lot of creativity and passion. On behalf of us all, thank you Myra and congratulations!

President, Braille Literacy Canada
Braille in Museums
By Kim Kilpatrick, BLC Secretary
As someone who has been totally blind since birth, going to museums as a kid was always a very frustrating experience. I wanted to learn and know about everything. To touch everything. To read everything. And I could not read or touch much of anything. People tried to describe things to me or read the information provided but it was never enough for me.
So, in recent years, I have been delighted to help several museums in Ottawa provide more braille and tactile objects in their exhibits.
I recently helped with the braille provided on an exhibit about codes and how to decipher them.
And then, I was pleasantly surprised to find an exhibit about Canadians in space at the aviation museum. This had a lot of tactile and braille panels where you could listen to audio clips. And, best of all, was a braille user guide for the exhibit. A big braille book describing all aspects of the exhibit and providing way finding tips and lots of information.
I was so excited by this and the museum felt welcoming and inclusive for me. I am starting to see more braille on interactive exhibits and on panels. I'm seeing more objects being labelled as well. I had never seen the braille user guide before and think it is something all museums should consider.
Seeking feedback: How would braille enhance your museum-going experience?
The Royal BC Museum is undergoing a Modernization Project. Here is a link to this initiative: https://engage.gov.bc.ca/museummodernization/
The Modernization Project is currently in the process of seeking input from individuals and organizations through online submissions and through public consultation, which is taking place in different regions of BC.
Braille Literacy Canada is in the process of collecting ideas and feedback on ways to improve Museum accessibility (with a focus on braille). Your feedback will guide our written submission and strengthen our voice. We want to hear from members of the braille community, wherever you may be in Canada:
- What has worked?
- What hasn't?
- How can braille, tactile graphics, touch exhibits and other tactile features be better integrated to improve Museum access?
Write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org by June 10th, 2019 and we will use these comments to inform our written submission.
You, too, can get involved and have an opportunity to have direct input into the Modernization Project. Here is the information about how individuals and organizations can get involved: https://engage.gov.bc.ca/museummodernization/ways-to-participate/
Regional public meetings are currently open for registration. The dates are as follows:
- Prince George: May 11
- Vancouver: June 8 and 10
- Victoria: June 13 and 15
- Kelowna: June 18
Registration for these public meetings and the details on locations and times are available at this link: https://engage.gov.bc.ca/museummodernization/community-meetings/
We encourage those from the BC braille community who are interested to get involved, so that braille access plays an important role in these conversations.
On behalf of the entire board, we thank you in advance and look forward to hearing from you!
BLC Recognizes National Teachers Appreciation Day!
May 7th was National Teacher Appreciation Day! Helen Keller knew what a difference a teacher could make in a student's life. What is your most memorable #braille #literacy #teaching moment? Is there a teacher (or for the teachers out there, a student!) who truly made a positive difference in your life?
Here are some testimonials posted to our social media pages from some of our board members to commemorate this special day:
My very first itinerant teacher gave me a tactile book to take home when I first started learning braille. I remember being very young and sitting on the couch with our golden retriever, feeling all the pictures. There was a tactile picture of a hand, and I remember placing my hand over it and thinking the hand was so much bigger than mine! I had low vision at the time and didn't understand at this very young age why I was learning braille, but she instilled a curiosity in me and I was so fascinated. That same teacher helped me make braille valentine's day cards for all the students in my class which was a huge hit and became a yearly tradition. Most of all, it instilled a sense of pride because I was learning something others were not, but everyone wished they could learn too! I have a distinct memory of my teacher encouraging me to help a fellow student who had reading difficulties in class. 'Why should I help her?' My 8 year old self argued. What she was showing me, through her encouragement to participate fully, is that as a blind person I need not view myself as a recipient of help. I have a lot to offer. I am grateful to her and all those after her who lit a spark in me that continues to push me forward to higher grounds each day. Disability and ability is often dictated by the ways in which we perceive ourselves more than anything else. The sky truly is the limit and teachers play a very big role in showing each of us this."
(Natalie Martiniello, President)
"I remember vividly my first #braille teacher in grade 1. I wanted to read for myself so much.
Although I had many adults (most especially both parents) who loved to read out loud to me, they always stopped before I'd had enough of books.
My first braille teacher had put my name in braille on the corner of my desk and she said, 'Feel these wonderful dots. This is your name in braille.'
I loved the shape of the K I M and although I could not read it myself yet, I was so excited." (Kim Kilpatrick, Secretary)
"When I was a child I thought that every blind person learned #braille as a matter of course, so I was shocked when I found out that this is not the case. Reading was then -- and still is today -- my favourite activity. I was blessed to have Jan Fuaco as my TVI, although I believe her title was something like 'itinerant teacher'. Mrs. F. clearly loved teaching and truly understood the importance of #braille #literacy. For those of you who are teachers, never underestimate the impact you can have on your students' lives!" (Jen Goulden, Past-President)
Braille at CSUN 2019
By Kim Kilpatrick, BLC Secretary
I was so excited to be invited to go to CSUN this past March. I have been wanting to attend CSUN for many years. This is the biggest accessibility conference and exhibit hall in the world, and I was especially excited to find out what new braille products were available.
The San Francisco Lighthouse for the Blind has a wonderful innovative project call T Map. They will braille you a map of an area. This could be your home area, workplace, or anywhere else you choose. We each were allowed one free braille map. Anyone who is interested can contact them and they will send you maps, although these will not be free of charge. The map I received was wonderful: complete with a braille key, it was easy to follow and carry around with me. The making of this map took about 3 minutes!
To find out more visit http://lighthouse-sf.org/tmap/
I was so excited to spend an hour with the Canute multi-line braille display. This was the most revolutionary thing I saw at CSUN. Being able to read nine lines of braille at a time was wonderful! The braille was crisp and clear, and the refresh sound was not unpleasant (sounding a little like an old cash register generating receipts). I was able to read braille music and poems, skim through a calendar, read a book, feel tactile graphics, and more.
This wonderful new device is a reader. It can be moved around but is not meant to be portable. It is like a Kindle reader for braille. The menus were easy to learn and the device filled me with joy as a long-time braille reader.
To find out more go to http://www.bristolbraille.co.uk/?COLLCC=3821623171&
I also saw the BtoG from the National Braille Press, the new Q Braille from HIMS, the BrailleNote Plus from Humanware, and a few other braille gadgets.
I am thrilled that more and more braille technologies are becoming available all the time, making braille more and more relevant.
Braille Literacy Canada presents: The ABCs of Learning Braille: Tips, Tricks and Tools for Adults

Join Braille Literacy Canada for a special teleconference all about learning braille as an adult or senior. A panel of speakers all of whom have taught braille as adults will share their tips, tricks and tools for success. Topics will include:
- What do we know about how braille reading works? What skills are needed to learn braille, and do these skills change as we get older?
- Myths and misconceptions about learning braille later in life. Is it harder? Is it possible? Who is braille for anyway?
- Take-away strategies: Practical tips, tricks and advice for adult braille learners
Leave with a toolbox of knowledge and strategies to set you on your way, and hear from others who have both taught and learned braille as adults. Whether you are an adult wondering about learning braille yourself, a family member of someone experiencing sight loss or a rehabilitation professional, this workshop is for you!
We hope you will join us - and we invite you to share this announcement with others!
Report of the President
By Natalie Martiniello, BLC President
Note: This report was circulated to all members prior to the May 2019 AGM and is reproduced here for convenience.
Dear BLC members,
Over the past year, it has been such a privilege to get to know many of you more and to work alongside such a dedicated board and group of members. I look forward to highlighting some of our accomplishments over the past year, and some of the exciting initiatives we have planned for the year ahead. If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we thank each of you for your continued support!
Edie Mourre Scholarship
The year began with a goal of establishing a permanent endowment for the Edie Mourre Scholarship. This scholarship, in memory of BLC member Edie Mourre who devoted much of her life to braille literacy, provides financial support to anyone in Canada pursuing training or certification to become a braille transcriber, proofreader or educator. In July 2018, we set forth with a goal of raising $6500 by December, and every one of these dollars would be matched thanks to the incredible generosity of an anonymous donor. Across Canada, members and supporters shared announcements, sent donations, and organized fundraising events. A walk-a-thon was organized in September to coincide with International Literacy Month. A fundraising storytelling event was held in Montreal to both educate the public and support the initiative. Not only did we meet our goal, but we surpassed it -- raising approximately $14,000 in total by the end of the campaign!
I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you who supported this initiative -- whether that meant sharing our announcements, volunteering your time or contributing your donations. I would like to especially thank Crawford Technologies and T-Base Communications for their generous contributions, and of course, our anonymous donor for making this all possible. BLC is now able to permanently offer at least one scholarship to a deserving recipient each year. The 2019 application period is now closed, and we look forward to announcing this year's deserving recipient at our Annual General Meeting.
Brailler Bounce Initiative
When Myra Rodrigues approached BLC with the idea to create the Brailler Bounce Initiative, we knew it would be a great opportunity to help connect braille readers with braillers. This initiative refurbishes old braillers and rehomes them to eagerly waiting braille users from across Canada at no charge to the donor or recipient. Through this program, we have now rehomed over 50 braillers, and have much to celebrate this year.
After announcing that we needed to restack our collection of braillers, we received an overwhelming response from all of you, with over a dozen brailler donations in the span of a few weeks. BLC is also pleased to have been awarded the 2019 Times-Colonist Grant -- the first grant we've secured for this program - to fund the repairing and rehoming of braillers for five recipients in BC (four young students and one older adult). In February, BLC was also featured in a special segment on AMI-TV to highlight the Brailler Bounce program.
Thank you to all those who have donated their time (and braillers), to Myra for her leadership, to François Ouellette for his many brailler repairs, and to everyone else who has contributed to this program over the past year.
To donate an unused brailler or to add your name to the recipient list, contact us at email@example.com.
Our website is currently being updated and we look forward to launching the first phase of our new site around the time of the AGM. The website will incorporate many new resources and features that will create a more user-friendly and mobile-responsive experience for our members. Stay tuned for additional website updates throughout the summer months.
We've also continued to have a strong social media presence throughout the year, with 333 followers on Twitter and 366 likes on our Facebook page. As a side-note, #WorldBrailleDay was retweeted so much on January 4th that it became a trending hashtag in Canada! Three cheers to the Canadian braille community, which I say with a great big double dot six!
Teleconferences and Workshops
We have continued to offer our quarterly teleconferences on braille-related themes completely free of charge to our members. We have held 7 of these workshops this year on the following topics: "BLC: Past, Present and Future"; "Emerging Braille Technologies"; "Braille Blaster Introduction"; "Understanding the Canadian Copyright Act and Alternative Formats"; "Braille for All Ages"; "Braille on the International Stage"; "The History of Braille and the War of the Dots". Stay tuned for the announcement for our June teleconference on tips and tricks for adult braille learners! We appreciate all the valuable feedback we've received and always welcome your comments and future topic ideas.
Teaching and Learning
In addition to our regular workshops, our Teaching and Learning committee (TLC), chaired by Betty Nobel, is launching a series of workshops for teachers of students with visual impairments, focusing on braille literacy topics of interest to educators. The first of these workshops will take place on April 24th, 2019. TLC has also been working on compiling a list of curricula and resources on UEB math which we will make available to members in future. Thank you to Betty and all committee members for their enthusiasm and hard work!
The BLC Communications Committee circulates a newsletter to members via email that contains a variety of braille-related articles of interest to all our stake-holders. We welcome and are always happy to receive submissions (in English or French) from our members and friends. If you are interested in a BRF or hardcopy braille version of the newsletter, these are now available through a special partnership with the Centre for Equitable Library Access (CELA). Thank you to Kim Kilpatrick for chairing this committee, and to all those both on and off the committee who contribute their talents and stories.
Over the past year, we have engaged in several outreach and public education initiatives, including:
- A special edition of the newsletter in honour of International Literacy Month, featuring stories of braille in action;
- A table at the February 2019 White cane Expo Day in Toronto: Melanie Romer (BLC Director) and Jeff Rainey (braille user) represented BLC and were on hand to answer questions, and distribute BLC information and bookmarks. Many thanks to them both for making this event such a success!
- Dwila Nixon (BLC Director) represented BLC at the March 2019 Insight conference for educators. Thank you Dwila for spreading the word about BLC and braille!
- We were featured in an interview segment on AMI-Radio and a special press release in honour of World Braille Day in January 2019;
- Daphne Hitchcock (BLC Vice-President) organized a library display in honour of World Braille Literacy Month at the Greater Victoria Public Library in January 2019. The display was available throughout the month and bookmarks were circulated to library patrons. Thank you Daphne for your creativity and hard work!
- We were featured in an interview in the online blog for the Toronto International Festival of Authors all about BLC and braille literacy: Check out https://festivalofauthors.ca/2019/blog/accessible-reading-an-interview-with-braille-literacy-canada
- We were featured in a segment on AMI-TV to promote our Brailler Bounce program in February 2019. Check out https://www.ami.ca/category/ami-week-business-and-technology-health-and-lifestyle/media/big-brailler-bounce-initiative
We continue to offer the UEB listserv for anyone with UEB code questions. Please feel free to contact us if you wish to subscribe or visit http://lists.blc-lbc.ca/mailman/listinfo/ueb_lists.blc-lbc.ca to sign up.
As of April 12th, BLC has 73 individual members (36 of them lifetime), and 8 corporate members (appointing a total of 15 representatives). The provincial breakdown is as follows:
- Alberta: 3 personal
- British Columbia: 24 personal + 1 corporate
- Manitoba: 2 personal
- New Brunswick: 2 personal
- Newfoundland and Labrador: 0

- Ontario: 24 personal + 6 corporate
- Prince Edward Island: 0
- Quebec: 8 personal + 1 corporate
- Saskatchewan: 5 personal
- Yukon Territory: 0
- TOTALS: 73 personal + 8 corporate
2020 will mark the 30th anniversary of BLC, and we look forward to celebrating this important milestone with our members, while also looking ahead to the exciting future of braille in Canada. In the coming months, you will learn more about what we are planning, though please feel free to contact us anytime with your ideas and comments!
BLC had some funds outstanding from a research project related to the Code braille français uniformisé (CBFU). This year, we have reinstated our French braille committee, and are exploring ways to use this funding to support access to print-braille materials for French-speaking children. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months.
In my first President's message last year, I wrote that our organization is not successful due to the efforts of one person, but because of the many busy working hands -- both on and off the board - who collaborate to make BLC what it continues to be today. As a not-for-profit organization, BLC relies on donations and grants, and the support of our founding members.
To all board members, both current and outgoing, thank you for your talents, your passion for braille literacy, and for your continued positive energy. I would like to especially thank outgoing board members Cathy Ausman and Rebecca Blaevoet (and Jenn Monks who served on the board for the first portion of this past year) for all their dedication over the years.
To our members (individual and corporate), thank you for volunteering, for your continued support, and for attaching such a sense of pride to the Canadian braille community. Thank you to Darleen Bogart for having served as CNIB representative to BANA and for providing BLC with regular updates through this role --BLC is so lucky to have you. Thank you to Jen Goulden for your outstanding support as Past-President as I transitioned into the role of President (and for all the fun, laughs and shared coffees!)
I must also thank CNIB for once again providing generous financial support which enables us to fulfill our mission, and for their administrative assistance in planning this year's AGM.
Finally, thank you to all of you for your shared passion. As a braille user, it has been a privilege to be part of a community that feels just as strongly about the freedom and empowerment that is granted through braille literacy.
Here is to building more braille bridges, and to working together towards another successful year ahead!
President, Braille Literacy Canada
