Description
National Braille Press is a nonprofit braille publishing and producing house established in 1927. We are committed to encouraging braille literacy and to offering meaningful employment to the blind and visually impaired. Tours of this unique facility follow the production of a book from transcription of the original text through proofreading, plate production, pressing, collating, and getting ready to ship. Tours allow for youth and adults to interact with and ask questions of the staff.
