Blind Abilities Presents an interview with Leonard Olijar, Director, Bureau Of Engraving & Printing, an agency of the U.S. Treasury Department responsible for the printing and safeguarding of the United States currency. Mr. Olijar talks about the Currency Reader Program featuring the iBill Money Reader, the EyeNote and IDEAL Money Reader smart phones apps available free in the App Store and Google Play Store respectively. He also offers an update for the much publicized Currency Redesign program which will see durable tactile markings on US paper currency. We should see this reach fruition sometime next year.
