Non-Profit To Add More Braille In Spokane

SPOKANE — A Spokane non-profit is trying to get the word out about the struggles of the visually impaired by offering a free Braille-translation service for local businesses.

The Lilac Services for the Blind is offering all Inland Northwest business owners the opportunity to translate their pamphlets or information sheets for free.

The non-profit organization recently completed menus for some Spokane restaurants and hotels and will soon begin translating Spokane Transit Authority maps and bus schedules.
