For the Love of 'Potter,' a Version in Braille

Aficionados of the Harry Potter series have long waited for this weekend: the sixth installment of the Harry Potter series finally arrives on shelves Saturday.

Soon, vision-impaired readers will have their own edition: A nonprofit printer and publisher, in cooperation with Potter publisher Scholastic, will publish Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince in braille on July 19, in eight volumes.

Scott Simon gets details from Diane Croft, vice president of marketing and publications for the National Braille Press.
