Company Profile
What is the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) doing to help blind and visually impaired Americans with banknote identification? BEP has worked closely with the public to study ways to improve the currency, including ways to help the public more readily identify currency denominations. These efforts have already resulted in design changes in 1996 and 2004 to improve security and to feature larger, high-contrast numerals with distinct background colors, and for Series 1999 to include a machine-readable feature. BEP continues to explore and develop solutions for the blind and visually impaired. For example, BEP has been working with the private sector since 2004 to help develop an even lower cost, hand-held currency reading device to supplement hand-held readers that are already commercially available. In late 2006, BEP issued a Request for Information (RFI) seeking updated information about currency readers, and in June 2007, BEP issued another RFI specifically to gather information regarding cell phone technology that can be used to allow the blind and visually impaired to use camera cell phones as currency readers. The results of these RFIs are currently being reviewed.
