Blindline® is a uniquely comprehensive information and referral service for people who are blind or visually impaired, their family members, caregivers, and professional service providers. The service includes a telephone number as well as a fully-accessible website, both linked to a database of accessible products and services, such as:

  • Museums with audio and tactile exhibits
  • Restaurants with Braille menus
  • Local government and social service offices
  • Accessible libraries
  • Recreational facilities
  • Rehabilitation agencies

If a particular information request cannot be found in the internal database, a Blindline® Information Specialist will continue to research the subject, and will return any findings to the caller in their preferred format: voice, email, Braille, large or standard sized print. In addition, Blindline® is a vocational training program, designed to enhance the performance skills of the volunteers who are blind or visually impaired.

The Blindline® Call Center phone line is available Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. For more information about this service, or to volunteer as an Information Specialist, contact:
