 News & Media

The guiding purposes of National Braille Press are to promote the literacy of blind children through braille and to provide access to information that empowers blind people to actively engage in work, family, and community affairs.

Audio Highlights!

Before attending NBP's gala to receive the Hands On! Award, blind Australian teen Connor McLeod did some rock wall climbing with Erik Weihenmayer - a visually impaired adventurer who’s been his role model. Listen to a short WBZ NewsRadio report above.

Read more about Erik and Connor's climb, and Connor's amazing and successful campaign to get his government to begin including tactile markings on their paper currency.

Run the Boston Marathon!

For over a year, NBP has been preparing for the nation-wide implementation of Unified English Braille on January 4, 2016. We pledge to provide materials in any code required by a braille-reading student. As states begin to develop their own plans for the transition to UEB, however, NBP is concerned about how the use of two different codes for math and science materials - UEB and Nemeth - will impact students across the country. Read our UEB position statement.
