It's the End Of The World As We Know It

Web Braille is gone!

This is the worst thing to hear when you won't bbe able to walk for at least 6 weeks. Can we say crying? This is awful.

Web Braille was the first library I had immediate access too. For someone sighted, imagine that you could only order things from the library. No matter what, you always had to order the book and it would take at least a week to get to you. Any book you wanted to buy, you first had to find it somewhere (no
Barnes and Nobel
to run to. That's how reading was for me until Web Braille came along. Yes, I have
Bookshare
but the quality of scanned books isn't always perfect.
Yes, I have
Audible
but if I buy it, I'm stuck with it, even if I don't like it.

Back to studying, but I had to vent/spill tears all over somewhere first.

Hugs!
