We've received an incredible number of requests for free TVI Braille Ignition Kits! National Braille Press is excited to share these free materials, which help to advance braille, tactile literacy, and focused topics like assistive technology and math and science.

The response from the TVI community makes it clear that these materials are needed, and we’ll work with our generous supporters to make kits available to more TVIs in the next year. We've distributed 1,400 kits in 2022, and will send another 1,400 throughout 2023.

We have reached our limit for free kits in 2023. The orders we've received will be be filled on a first-come/first-served basis.
