Why Braille is Necessary
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) provides civil rights protection to individuals with disabilities in private sector employment, all public services, public accommodations, transportation, and telecommunications. Braille users are covered under this umbrella of protection and have the right to equal access of all printed materials.
