While visiting a former classmate in Braunschweig earlier today, I attempted to take a few videos. Half way through this one, I realized that the sighted person with me would probably do a much better job. Of course he was confused as I had my iPhone screen turned off and as such, he was unable to see anything.

Braunschweig, like many German cities, is very old. One of the things I found most interesting, however, is that there are many Braille signs throughout the city, often accompanied with tactile models of the various buildings.

As mentioned above, i attempted taking this video, but half way through, handed the iPhone off to another person. Anyway, hopefully that will at least explain any confusion in the video.

Finally, in case you’re unable to access the video, click here for a direct link.
