Unified English Braille Code

This poll is intended for blind or partially blind people, but I have made provisions for the sighted to have relevant options for them as well.

Poll #1159724 The Unified English Braille Code

What do you know about the Unified English Braille Code?

I have been studying the proposed new code quite thoroughly.
2(22.2%)
I have heard about the new code but haven't really made any effort to look at it.
5(55.6%)
I have heard of the new code, but couldn't be bothered to look at it.

I am blind or partially blind, but not a braille reader, so this doesn't affect me.
0(0.0%)
I am not blind, so this doesn't affect me.

There has been a lot of apathy among blind people about the new code. what do you think about this apathy?

It speaks badly of blind people who can't be bothered to take an interest in changes sighted people are trying to make to their system of writing.
5(55.6%)
It's understandable because blind people have more important things to worry about than what will happen to their system of writing.
3(33.3%)
It shows that, by and large, blind people support the new code. Apathy equals support.
1(11.1%)

What do you think about braile as a writing medium?

It is clunky and outdated.
0(0.0%)
It is the difference between literacy and illiteracy.
8(100.0%)
It had its place, but what do we really need it for now?
0(0.0%)
It was a bad idea from the beginning.
0(0.0%)
Oh give me a break, I really don't want to take an interest.
0(0.0%)
I am not a braille reader due to physical limitations, so this doesn't apply to me.
0(0.0%)
I am not blind, but I see braille as being the difference between literacy and illiteracy.
0(0.0%)
I am not blind, and therefore couldn't be bothered with any of this.

I am not blind and simply don't feel qualified to offer an opinion.
