Breaking the Braille Media Mold

In India, blind bookworms had long been constrained by limited options in specialized libraries. But lifestyle magazines aren’t just for sighted readers anymore.
 
Although Braille is ubiquitous in India, which has the world’s largest blind population, mainstream publications generally ignored the market.
 
Enter White Print, India’s first English-language Braille magazine. It brings human interest, art, food and fashion stories to 350 subscribers a month, and devotees are hungry for more. One reader even transcribes each issue for a friend who reads only Tamil-language Braille. "That's the kind of dedication my readers have," says the publisher.
