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

“It was the first braille book I ever read and it was simply entitled Where’s Tessa? and I thought, wow, I’m in a book, I’m a celebrity,” Tess told Talking Vision host Sam Colley.

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.
