 About Us
 All About Braille
 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.

ReadBooks Needs Your Feedback!

If you have received or distributed a ReadBooks! Bag in the past 7 years, we want to hear from you! This survey should take only 10 minutes, but the importance of your feedback may last for years. Continued funding for this program depends on its impact on families like yours. Thanks!

Book cover for Out and About

In the latest issue of AccessWorld, Deborah Kenrick raves about Judy Dixon and Doug Wakefield's Out and About: Our Favorite Travel Apps: "If you want to give better directions to the people who drive you from place to place, if you want to take greater control of your own transportation itinerary, or if you just want to learn more about the places in your neighborhood and around the world, you will love this book."

Write Us a Letter!
