Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Making the Bible accessible by providing in audio form for most devices the blind, visually impaired and print disabled users use each day.

Working with the National Library Service for the Blind in the United States, as well as other organized libraries servicing the blind to provide their patrons accessible access to the Scriptures.

We are able to convert audio into Daisy Book format, which is the global format adapted for print-handicapped users.

We are the leading blind organization in the world providing accessible access to the Bible in many different accessible formats making it available to anyone, no matter what type of accessible device they use.
