Feature: From raised dots to faraway lands -- improved braille system opens world to the visually impaired


Peng Bin, 56, has been blind since he was nine years old, but that has not held him back from pursuing his career goals.


Using braille, the special education teacher has read thousands of books, learned to play musical instruments, taught music and computer skills to students with visual impairments, and traveled to many parts of the country that he has come across in his reading.


He has also given back to his community, assisting in efforts to standardize braille nationwide.

"Reading braille has greatly enriched my spiritual world and kept me connected to society," said Peng, who has been using the tactile reading and writing system for 44 years. . "Many of the places I have toured in books, I have also visited in person with a cane or my guide dog, Pang Hu."
