The mission and purpose of the Braille Authority of North America are to
assure literacy for tactile readers through the standardization of braille
and/or tactile graphics. BANA promotes and facilitates the use, teaching,
and production of braille. It publishes rules, interprets, and renders
opinions pertaining to braille in all existing codes. It deals with codes
now in existence or to be developed in the future, in collaboration with
other countries using English braille. In exercising its function and
authority, BANA considers the effects of its decisions on other existing
braille codes and formats; the ease of production by various methods; and
acceptability to readers.
