CityStream: Braille & Bites
CityStream: Braille & Bites

They compete like any kid, never letting blindness hinder their ability. The Braille Challenge tests students in five categories ranging from spelling to reading comprehension. Many consider blindness a disability. But once you see these kids in action, you may think otherwise. Then, it's a disease that infects 200 million people each year.
