The Delaware County Board of Developmental Disabilities (DCBDD) is proud to announce a new initiative to improve accessibility for people who are blind or visually impaired.
DCBDD has partnered with the Department of the Treasury’s Bureau of Engraving and Printing to distribute the iBill Talking Currency Reader, a simple but powerful device that uses technology to identify the denomination of U.S. currency. This device will be distributed to Ohioans who are blind or visually impaired, and DCBDD is excited to bring this technology to the community.
The iBill Talking Banknote Identifier is a small, handheld device that quickly and accurately identifies the denomination of U.S. currency. It provides three modes of identification – voice, tones, or vibrations – to accommodate different needs and preferences. The device will be an invaluable tool for people who are blind or visually impaired, providing them with independence and peace of mind when handling currency.
The iBill Talking Currency Reader is part of a larger effort by DCBDD to improve accessibility and independence for people with disabilities. In addition to distributing the iBill reader, DCBDD provides a wide range of services and supports, including case management, linkage with community resources, advocacy, funding of supports for daily living, and more. DCBDD’s goal is to ensure that all people with developmental disabilities have access to the resources they need to lead fulfilling and meaningful lives.
If you or someone you know is interested in receiving the iBill Talking Currency Reader, please contact the Delaware County Board of Developmental Disabilities at 740.201.3600 or visit our website at www.dcbdd.org/iBill.
