A&M-Commerce Professor to Learn, Receive Innovative New Braille Device

A&M-Commerce faculty Dr. Belinda Rudinger has been selected to participate in a two-day training on the Monarch, a revolutionary new braille device. The Monarch is the first braille device to offer more than one line of braille at a time as tactile graphics, or pictures made from raised lines.

After completing the training, Rudinger will be dubbed a “Monarch Master” and will have a Monarch to bring back and demonstrate for students. The $20k machine will be a welcome addition to the Assistive Technology Lab on campus.
