MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- It's a world of fun and imagination...at your fingertips.
Today, on May 19, blind and visually-impaired children were able to take part in the 20th annual "Braille Games" at the Milwaukee Public Museum.
This year, they went on an adventure around the globe as they learn about cultures from Asia, India, Africa and Central America. It's an important opportunity for blind children to use braille in a fun and interactive way, all while being mentored by blind adults who are self-sufficient and independent.
"Along with being able to read about these cultures in braille, that's really special," said Cheryl Orgas, executive director of Audio & Braille Literacy Enhancement (ABLE). "To just have a day focused on the medium that blind and low-vision children use."
Today's event was sponsored by the "Wisconsin Talking Book and Braille Library", "Audio & Braille Literacy Enhancement", "Vision Forward", the "Milwaukee Public Museum" and local school districts.
