TULSA, Okla. — The Oklahoma School for the Blind (OSB) is celebrating National Braille Literacy Month.

The school held its own Amazing Race and had stations with different activities for student groups. They had to complete their tasks using braille to get their next clue and advance in the race.

"Braille is really what gives students access to print, so when you think of things that you might see in the elevator, in a hotel room, our students need to use braille in order to get access to those things, explained Samantha Charles, the outreach coordinator at OSB.

The month of January is dedicated to celebrating the importance of the braille system to the blind and visually impaired.
