Braille

These amazing little bumps—on paper, plastic or metal—open the world of literacy, learning, living and employment to independent living for people who are blind.

  • Did you know that 74% of working-age blind people are unemployed and depend on support such as disability income benefits? And it is estimated that the lost productivity due to blindness and eye diseases is $8.0 billion per year in the United States.

  • Empower Tennessee houses one of the most robust braille shops providing opportunity for empowerment, work, and the freedom for people to live the lives they choose. We have provided braille for American country music singer and pianist Ronnie Milsap, hospitals and churches along with plastic menus for restaurants located at The Frist Visual Arts Center and Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art.
