Directory of Producers of Accessible Reading Materials

2021

This directory was compiled by the National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled (NLS), Library of Congress, from information supplied by organizations, groups, and individuals who produce a wide variety of materials on request for people who are blind, visually impaired, or have physical disabilities that limit their ability to use printed materials. Formats include audio, braille, and large print. Some are produced at no charge by volunteers and others are produced for a fee. The listing is alphabetized by state and then by city within each state.

Organizations, groups, and individuals that produce reading materials for people who are blind or have a physical disability and are not listed in this directory are invited to submit information for future editions to [email protected] . A listing in this directory is not an indication of endorsement by NLS or the Library of Congress.
