Miller is one of the proofreaders on the project and makes sure the braille matches the print. TriHealth and Clovernook believe this is just the beginning for businesses looking for a way to be more inclusive.

“Hope this is the start of this change to provide an equal experience for anyone that accesses their services,” said Samuel Foulkes, the director of braille production and accessible innovation.

“Makes individuals feel welcome and at home and think people with disabilities unnecessarily go through challenges with trying to make themselves feel a part of organizations,” said Tashawna Otabil, the chief diversity and inclusion officer of TriHealth.

Miller said it’s a good start and he already has ideas on how it could expand to other big businesses.

“We could even do this for meal kit service I told you about because they use a scan-to-cook technology,” Miller said.
