Braille World Day

Today, January 4th , is commemorated the invention of writing for the blind, and the birth of its inventor Louis Braille, also blind. His blindness wasn’t congenital. In his early days , little Louis wound himself in one of his eyes, and was immediately blinded by that eye. After a while the infection from the first eye wounds passes into the second, leaving Louis Braille completely blind.

By the age of 10 he joins the Royal Institute of the Blind in Paris. Later, in 1827, he became a teacher and developed a system that was earlier than his own and that is when Braille was born – “a process of reading and writing through raised dots”.

It was a great advance for the teaching of the blind. Adaptable to all languages ​​and all kinds of spellings, the Braille System has brought more knowledge to the blind who enjoy it.

In the case of Accessible Tourism, it was an enormous contribution in the dissemination of the Destinations, its Culture, its people and to make more accessible all products and services destined, when there are, people with this type of incapacity.

Dia Mundial do Braille

Hoje, 4 de Janeiro, comemora-se  a invenção da escrita para cegos, e o nascimento do seu inventor Louis Braille, também ele cego. A sua cegueira não era congénita. Ainda muito novo o pequeno Louis feriu-se num dos olhos ficando imediatamente cego desse olho. Passado algum tempo a infecção provocada pelos ferimentos do primeiro olho passa para o segundo deixando Louis Braille completamente cego.

Por volta dos 10 anos de idade entra para o Instituto Real de Cegos de Paris. Mais tarde, em 1827 torna-se professor e desenvolve um sistema anterior ao seu e é então que nasce a escrita em Braille- “ processo de leitura e escrita por meio de pontos em relevo” .

Foi um grande avanço para o ensino dos cegos. Adaptável a todas as línguas e todas as espécies de grafias, o Sistema Braille trouxe mais conhecimento aos cegos que dele usufruem.

No caso do Turismo Acessível foi um contributo enorme na divulgação dos Destinos, da sua Cultura, das suas gentes e para tornar mais acessíveis todos os produtos e serviços destinados, quando os há, a pessoas com este tipo de incapacidade.

Museu Nacional do Azulejo é mesmo para todos

 

Versão Portuguesa

 

Começou por ser um convento de Clarissas, no século XVI. No século XIX torna-se num armazém de azulejos.  Nos anos 50 do século passado tornou-se no Museu nacional do Azulejo. É Acessível Todos

O Museu Nacional do Azulejo localiza-se no Convento da Madredeus, em Xabregas,  Lisboa. À época da sua construção estava localizado nos arrabaldes de Lisboa. Mandado construir em 1509 pela Rainha D. Leonor   foi entregue à ordem de Santa Clara. Desde essa altura até ao século XIX, o Convento sofreu várias requalificações. Sobreviveu ao terramoto de 1755.

 

O Convento, só por si um Monumento.

Só por si, o edifício onde está instalado o Museu é digno de visita. Nele podemos encontrar uma capela , anterior ao Terramoto, “forrada a ouro” , toda ela decorada com a famosa talha dourada tão comum no barroco português. É também possível observar um Presépio Monumental que retrata a vida do povo, os trabalhos do campo e a vida quotidiana.

Painéis e Padrões de Azulejos

O Azulejo  é uma invenção  trazida pelos árabes quando habitavam toda a Península Ibérica.  Segundo os especialistas a azulejaria portuguesa demarcou-se da Espanhola  e dos Países Baixos por três características : o diálogo com o espaço onde se insere e com as outras artes decorativas, como é o caso do painel trazido da Igreja de S. André destruída pelo terramoto de 1755.

Outro aspeto diferenciador da azulejaria portuguesa é o gosto pelos têxteis . É possível encontrar no Museu vários tipos de padrões. Por último a joalharia é também ela um fator diferenciador da azulejaria em Portugal. É possível a observação de pinturas em azulejo que retratam jóias.

Acessibilidades

O Museu Nacional do Azulejo é considerado um museu realmente para Todos. Existem atividades para miúdos e graúdos, famílias e Séniores. Nos últimos anos o Museu investiu, fortemente nas acessibilidades para pessoas com necessidades especiais. Com a ajuda de Mecenas, consultores e pessoas com deficiência  foi possível tornar este espaço acessível a todos.  Foram construídas rampas de acesso para pessoas com deficiência motora, adquiridos áudio-guias com  para pessoas com baixa visão ou cegas, foram também construídas diversas maquetas para que as pessoas possam tatear e brochuras em Braille.  Para pessoas surdas foram adquiridos guias em Língua Gestual Portuguesa e Sistema de Signos internacional para visitantes estrangeiros.
