Lego Begins Offering Set Instructions for the Blind

I’m a lifelong Lego enthusiast, and I’m also blind. I am beyond ecstatic about the news that Lego has launched a new website with building set instructions in text, audio, and Braille formats for visually impaired builders. They’re starting out with four sets and plan to roll it out to the rest of their products next year.

The Washington Post has a great article about it here. I highly recommend reading it, as it goes into depth on the genesis of the project.

Guess who has already ordered two of the available sets?

And, damn, there’s a new 6000+ piece Hogwarts Castle set out…I’m in trouble. 😱
