What we do in QLD

It was in March 1897 that seven women met in the Telegraph Chambers in Adelaide Street, Brisbane and formed the Queensland Braille Writing Association. Braille House provides Braille and Moon tuition and reading material to empower people who are blind or who have low vision to live with dignity and independence.

Queensland Braille Writing Association (Braille House) is a voluntary association of people specialising in tactual literacy.

Braille House provides to our clients and stakeholders through:

Library: a free lending library of braille and moon books.

Transcribers: produce books and other resources in braille for children and adults, students of all ages, organisations and government departments.

Tutoring:  Our braille tutors are skilled in tutoring adults who wish to become touch readers of braille or moon script; most have passed the Trans-Tasman Braille Proficiency Exam.
