Being handed a 5-page braille book at the age of four was all the introduction Tess Herbert needed to immerse herself in reading.

Reading braille books and writing in braille was all Tess knew for her first few years, as computers and touch-typing didn’t come into her life until 10 years old.
In this podcast, Tess shares her braille journey with Talking Vision host Sam Colley.
