Hello,

I'm User:Graham87 on Wikipedia, and as it says on my user page there, 
I'm totally blind:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Graham87

I'll be attending Wikimania this year as one of the representatives of 
Wikimedia Australia. I'd like a braille copy of the printed program, so 
I can follow along with it like everybody else. Converting computer 
files into braille is not a difficult process, but it does require 
specialised (and ridiculously expensive!) equipment to emboss the 
braille dots and bind the books, so braille production agencies like 
people to submit material to them some time in advance (generally about 
a week). When will the program be in its final form, so it can be sent 
somewhere to be brailled? I can think of a couple of ways of doing this:
*If the program will be ready by Tuesday week (the 27th of June), I can 
send it to my local Association for the Blind and they can braille it at 
no cost to me. The date gives them about a week's notice while I can 
still pick it up (I'll be leaving on the 5th of July).
*If it'll be ready after then, could you arrange for it to be brailled 
by a place in Washington DC? The Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind 
sounds like as good a place as any:
http://www.clb.org/braille-production

It will cost some money if it's done this way, however, but I have no 
idea how much.

Thanks!

Regards, Graham

The program is almost 100% ready to be center to the printer. I can send it to you tomorrow, if you would like.

Is the program ready to be brailled yet? We're starting to cut it a bit fine with timing now, if it's to be brailled here in Perth...

I think we can get the program printed here in Braille and would be good to have multiple copies, as I think some other might also need it.

If you still want to bring your own copy, I think James has the final version of the program.  

Cheers,
Katie

Hi Katie,

OK, sounds good. I'll be happy to use one of the copies brailled in Washington.
