Louis Braille Prize Announced

Louis Braille prize award recipients picturedAmid the coronavirus pandemic it's helpful to receive some uplifting news from time to time. Lisa Dalton was honored this month with the Louis Braille Touch of Genius Prize for Innovation. She created reusable braille labels ("CanDo" labels) because her former boyfriend is blind. Dalton wanted to help him find things in food cabinets. Lisa founded Candoables, a company that uses 3-D printers to make Braille "CanDo" labels. 

"CanDo labels are already having an impact on the blind and visually impaired community," Brian Mac Donald, president of the National Braille Press, said in the release. "These reusable labels will help significantly in keeping areas such as the pantry or refrigerator organized."
