I’d long since given up asking for anything from my employer in Braille, particularly after many fights about having Braille hand-outs at seminars and training days. The council has a Braille production office, but managers are more often than not unable, it seems, to submit their hand-outs early enough for them to be reproduced in Braille.
Someone in a silly little office somewhere has devised a new system for notifying the office if we are off sick. No longer do we ring our office, speak to someone who knows our workload and sort out any work that needs to be covered. Now we have to ring a faceless call centre somewhere in the far north of the county and inform them. They will then inform our department.
This procedure has today been sent to me in Braille. No request from me for this to be done. No real need for this though as I’d already seen it by Email.
At least I now have some ammunition though. Braille can be, and still is being reproduced by the council, so I’d like to see more of it please!
