About Compass Braille - Good News at their fingertips

Evangeline saying what Braille means to her

Compass Braille has been transcribing and producing Braille Bibles in various languages since 1990. Initially we worked on the transcription of the Braille Bible in Indian languages. As technology has progressed and our expertise has grown we have been able to achieve much more than the original goal of completing 11 Indian languages. We now produce in more than 50 languages and working on others. Our Braille is despatched to 120 destinations worldwide to parts of Asia, Africa, Oceania and Europe.

Who uses our Braille: Materials for projects run by indigenous groups are transcribed, produced and despatched by Compass Braille. Requests for Braille come to us from those working among people with visual disabilities and who run projects for the blind. Some outreach groups that produce or use Christian reading materials for their own projects also use Braille. Because our products are computer generated we are able to produce large or small quantities according to requirements.

Who receives our Braille: Mostly our Braille is despatched to recognised groups and schools where it is used in churches, education, vocational training and self-employment schemes as well as hostels, drop-in centres and mini-Braille Bible libraries for 'house churches'. Some of the groups also use our Braille at summer camps for adults and children from various backgrounds where new experiences are often shared with sighted people.

We pride ourselves on the quality of our Braille and use only the best materials such as metal spiral bindings and laminated covers for durability. Our policy is to offer EQUAL ACCESS to people with visual disabilities and to this end we are always looking for new opportunities.

If your organisation produces Christian literature or operates overseas programmes that use printed materials, perhaps you might like to consider making your materials equally available to people with visual disabilities. We can help you do this - so if you would like to discuss the possibilities, please contact us:- +44 (0)1920 413572 or email via our contact us page.
