Letter: Books for the blind

Sir: We were most interested to read about Luke's Story, a computer programme giving disabled people access to the Bible (Science Update, 7 December). Research by the Royal National Institute for the Blind reveals that nearly a quarter of all blind and partially sighted people (22 per cent) attend churches.

The RNIB estimates that there are nearly one million blind and partially sighted people in Britain. Visually impaired people can obtain a variety of devotional material from the RNIB, including prayer books in braille, religious magazines in braille, the Bible in braille and on tape, and a large-print carol book.

Yours sincerely,

IAN BRUCE
