The Arts and Cultural Attractions Council is a membership network of decision-makers representing the arts and cultural attractions of the Greater Louisville Region and Southern Indiana.

  • Attraction must be situated in Louisville's seven-county region (three Kentucky and four Indiana counties).

  • Attraction must be a destination facility or performance activity that attracts the public on a regular or seasonal basis, or a non-profit entity / professional association supporting this sector.

Sustainable Braille: The History of Paperless Braille

Through December 31, 2015
See calendar for times

Just as the print industry is moving away from paper books and magazines, printing for blind readers has also been shifting away from paper braille. Some of this has to do with improved industrial efficiency, but the computerization of braille and the use of electronic braille displays also plays an important part. In 1964, APH embossed 68 million pages of braille and printed 12 million pages of large type. Last year, serving more readers, APH embossed only 17 million pages of braille and printed 14 million pages of large type. That is a lot less paper, requiring a lot less trees. The exhibit will explore the history of computerized braille, notetakers like the Braille 'n Speak, and the rise of the refreshable braille display, as well changes in industrial production that reduce the amount of paper we consume each year.
