  2. Encouraging the use and development of braille technology;
  3. Encouraging the teaching and transcription of braille music in order to provide greater access to music that is available in print;
  4. Establishing, adopting and monitoring standards for the production and teaching of both English and French braille; and
  5. Encouraging the use of braille in the home, school and general community.
