Apparently I'm going to have to take a braille test. There's a subtle irony here, in that a good portion of the stuff I've proofread over the last few years was done for the very same Department of Education that I'm now doing a braille test for. go bleepin' figure. But, I suppose, protocol is potocol. Mind you, I was supposed to take a braille test for this job too, but that never materialized, I got the job and went straight into training. Here are the facts in my favor as I see them:
1. There aren't exactly dozens of people who have braille proofreader's certification.
2. Not all of those have pretty much ten years' solid experience.
3. Not all of those have a high level of competency in computers.
Working against me are a hearing loss, and my natural inborn ability to screw things up if given half a chance. I am going for hearing aids soon, I've been saving up, and there's realy nothing I can do about the second part. What I want now is a milk shake and a hug.
