Query:   Dear Linguists,

I am studying B.Sc Human Communication Sciences at Sheffield University,
and am totally blind. I would like to develop my career in phonetic
analysis of typical and impaired speech. The Braille system which I
currently use allows me to transcribe most of the IPA, but does not provide
me with Ext.IPA or VOQs symbols. I aim to develop my current system further
to include these, but would first be interested to make contact with other
Braille IPA users and to discover their transcription methods. I ultimately
hope to create a system which is as standardised as the written one, and
feel that anyone wishing to use it should be involved.

If you or anyone you know can help, please let me know.

Many thanks.

Sarah Gray.
