From the mailbag:

The National Braille Press’s Touch of Genius Prize for Innovation is now accepting entries!

The Touch of Genius Prize was developed to inspire entrepreneurs, educators or inventors to continue the promotion of braille and tactile literacy for blind and deafblind people worldwide. This prize can be granted for innovative and accessible computer software, Android applications, iOS applications, or tactile hardware that promotes braille and/or tactile literacy.  NBP encourages all applicants to think outside the box to what can be used to help improve the lives of blind people.
