Scottish crime writer Ian Rankin is best known for his Inspector Rebus novels. But this week he's got his finger on a new case, raising awareness of Braille. Ian has a personal interest both as a bestselling author and because his son Kit is blind, attending the Royal School for the Blind in Edinburgh. It's all part of a campaign launched alongside the 200th anniversary celebrations, marking two centuries since the creation of the language by Louis Braille.

In this You and Yours Podcast, Ian talks about having his latest novel printed in Braille and the many uses of the language from soup tins to bank statements. Download it now!
