Brazilian stamps with subtitles in Braille
Although Brazil is known to some social problems, attention to people with disabilities has increased in recent decades, but we still have to work hard.
The Brazil issued the world's first stamp with subtitles in Braille in 1974, he had written "The blind man is a participating citizen."
In 1979, to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the first publication in braille in the world, the post office issued another stamp with the words "By touching the reliefs of paper, the blind part of the evolution of the world."
After many years passed and in 2013, another stamp to remind Dorina Nowill Foundation, an institution that seeks the inclusion of visually impaired people access to education and culture. Dorina Nowill was the first blind student in a regular educational institution in Brazil and as an adult created a publisher of books in braille.
Recently with the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro the Brazilian Post created two minisheets subtitled in braille: Olympic Games 2016 and Paralympic Games in 2016.
I thank Laura Thermes for your visit and comment on the previous post, which motivated me to write about the subject.
