This morning the participants visited the Hiroshima Prefectural Braille Library to learn about its services for persons with visual impairment.


The participants learned about production and lending of Braille and recorded books, reading services, reference service through NAIVE network (National Association of Institutions of Information Service for Visually Impaired Persons) etc. They were surprised to know that the postage of materials for persons with visual impairments are free of charge in Japan, and also that the services are largely supported by a number of non-paid volunteers.
