American Printing House

The American Printing House is the world’s largest company devoted solely to researching, developing, and manufacturing products for people who are blind or visually impaired. It’s located on Frankfort Avenue in Louisville, and the campus includes an on-site museum of technologies developed to assist people with disabilities.

Founded in 1858 by the Commonwealth of Kentucky, the American Printing House is the oldest organization of its kind in the United States. Under the 1879 federal Act To Promote the Education of the Blind, APH is the official supplier of educational materials for visually impaired students in the U.S. who are working at less than college level. APH manufactures textbooks and magazines in Braille, large-print, recorded, and computer disc formats as well as hundreds of educational, recreational, and daily living products.
