2. Language

Many people mistakenly believe Braille is a language, but it is not. Braille is a tactile coded alphabet used to transcribe language. English, Chinese, Spanish, Russian, Hebrew and many other languages have Braille versions. People with visual impairments learn Braille in their native language. They can not read Braille in another language unless they also learn that language.
