Does Japanese have any equivalent to Braille, some written language for the blind? What do blind people use to read, other than a friend who likes reading aloud?
And second, my Purposeful Question, RP-ing for the use of:
What would be some books a Japanese History of Literature class would be likely to read? Are there Japanese equivalents of Dickens, Shakespeare, whoever wrote Ethan Frome, and so on, that everyone reads in high school? If not, what would a Literature course in Japan involve reading?
