2./ Press release/invitation title: Hungarian Qualifying round of the International Braille Contest, supported by the Visegrad Fund

3./ Text: As part of the International Braille Contest, sponsored by the Visegrad Fund, on the 21st of April Hungarian contestants will present their knowledge in four disciplines: reading, writing, textediting and sharing the results in e-mail. They will use cellphones and Braille displays to solve the exercises. The Hungarian National Contest will be organised by the IT Foundation for the visually Impaired (INFOALAP). The three best participants can travel to Poznan, to present their skills during the International Braille Contest, together with Czech and Polish finalists. The International Braille Contest will be held between the 16th and the 18th of May in Poznan, Poland. The aim of the contest is to show the international blind community and the sighted audience that Braille, combined with tools of the modern technology is a great way to communicate. Braille has its own place in the IT-based society too, and it can be a bridge between blind communities of the Middle European region.
