The National Braille Association (NBA) is a volunteer, non-profit organization that provides continuing education opportunities to people who prepare braille. It also provides braille materials to persons who are blind and visually impaired.
The NBA's referral service links interested organizations with qualified independent contractors who conduct seminars on braille transcribing, aduio tape recording techniques and tactile graphics. It hosts a national membership conference every two years and publishes the NBA Bulletin, a quarterly newsletter available in accessible formats that contains technical advice for the braille transcriber and or reader.
The NBA's services for the blind include transcribing and duplicating services. There are approximately 2,300 titles in the group's collection, all listed in one of three NBA catalogs: NBA Textbook Catalog, NBA Music Catalog, and NBA General Interest Catalog. Catalogs are free upon request.
