Bureau of Engraving and Printing Distributes Free Currency Reader

The Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) is distributing a free currency reader to people with vision impairments upon request. The iBill Currency Identifier identifies all denominations of U.S. paper currency by either voice announcement, tone pattern, or vibration pattern.

This follows a pilot program BEP launched in September through the National Library Services for the Blind and Physically Handicapped to test ordering and distribution processes and to gauge demand in advance of the current roll-out. Approximately 15,000 readers were pre-ordered and delivered under the pilot program.

Those who wish to request a reader can download an application form at BEP's website. Further information is also available by contacting BEP at (844) 815-9388 or meaningful.access@bep.gov.
