What Happens With Your Donation?
The Creation of braille is a time-intensive process and requires substantial knowledge, skill, and specialized equipment. Frequently, organizations do not consider including braille and other forms of accessible content when they are developing their documents, websites, and other media. The result is that braille and accessible media are an afterthought that goes above and beyond the planned budget. Because of this, the cost of producing braille is often a surprise and frequently, organizations decide to forego it, even though accessible media would be beneficial to their customers, patrons, and themselves!
The majority of donations go directly to reduce or remove costs to our customers, so they more readily partner with Handid to ensure that braille and accessible media are available. Secondarily, donations are used to purchase and maintain equipment and software licenses so we are always well equipped to produce braille and accessible media quickly.
