      Hello,

      I may know someone, but can you please explain what you would like this person to do?  Additionally, will you have a Japanese contact (as the contact doesn’t speak English).

      Hi! I’m from Mirairo, a Japanese company specialized in consultancy on universal design and inclusion.

      https://www.mirairo.co.jp/en/

      We are not experts in Braille, but we have worked with several museums in Japan to make art accessible to visitors with visual impairment.

      This article may give you some idea, though it’s a machine translation.

      If you are interested, let us know!

      Hello Emi,

      thanks for your reply, it’s interesting. We could definitively work together in the future.

      Unfortunately I didn’t find the machine translation for japanese braille you speak about, can you send me a link?

      Here is our email address: info @ tactilestudio.de

      Thank you very much!

      Best regards
