Instagram Post with caption We were thrilled to take Paige Connect on tour to LA in March for the 2024 CSUN conference! We met with many amazing educators, learners, and charities all working to promote braille and inclusion.

During the event, we had the chance to chat with Dave Williams from @rnibradio and Sam Seavey from @theblindlifesam , both of whom featured us in their CSUN roundups.

A special thank you to @weareinnovateuk for sponsoring our trip to LA through the Global Explorers Program.

Instagram Post with caption Last month, we shipped a Paige Connect board to @otters.have.pockets, a disability advocate and journalism student who's embarking on the journey of learning braille.

We first met Seren back in May last year when we introduced her to one of our earliest prototypes. 

Seeing the evolution of Paige Connect since that initial meeting is very rewarding, and especially when you watch Seren’s reaction to the new board!

Instagram Post with caption Happy World Braille Day! Observed annually, today marks the birth of Louis Braille who 200 years ago, at the age of 15, invented the tactile system.

Braille enables blind people of any age to read with their fingers. With only six raised dots braille can be used to read books, play music or learn maths and languages!

Instagram Post with caption Last month we attended Sight Village Birmingham where we had the chance to meet with Jack Marshall. 

Jack is a university student studying Computer Science and Music Production and has written that “adaptations have played and still play a major part throughout my educational journey, and they enable me to survive and thrive. One example is the tactile writing system braille. I have used braille in multiple forms from regular braille, braille music and even braille codes for other languages”. 

Jack had the opportunity to try out Paige Connect and even left us a note!
