We believe the long white cane is a means to independence.  The white cane has proved a useful tool to millions of blind people in navigating their environments with confidence and safety.  It is a tool which allows blind people to travel where and when they want, and as such leads to self-sufficiency.

We believe every blind person should have all of the tools available to them as a means to independence. The slate and stylus have long been and continue to be valuable tools for writing Braille.

The slate and stylus is the only Braille-writing device that has the same portability, flexibility and affordability as a pen and pencil. From labeling various items to jotting down a phone number, the uses and advantages of the slate and stylus to the blind are as varied as those of the pencil or pen to the sighted. You can order a free slate and stylus by visiting:
