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.

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.
