- Judy Dixon's Collection of Braille and Tactile-writing Slates - Judy Dixon has created a web site for her collection of braille and tactile-writing slates. In addition to details on the 190 different slates from 25 countries, she has also created a "special exhibit" entitled "Reviving the Braille Slate" with descriptions and photos of various aspects of braille slates--hinges, pins, special features, etc. to illustrate how slates might be manufactured less expensively and made easier to use and of more practical value. Judy hopes that this review will help inspire some creative thought about slate design and use and will give those interested in braille slates some basic information to encourage slate manufacturers to take a fresh look at braille slates as a vital literacy tool for blind persons.
