Christian Record Services for the Blind improves the quality of life for children, teens, and adults with visual impairments by providing them with free programs and services focused on their needs.
In 1899, Austin O. Wilson, a legally blind young man in his early 20s, was concerned about the lack of Christian reading material available for the blind. He decided to try an experiment. Taking a clothes wringer, he modified it to accommodate two metal plates with a sheet of heavy paper between them. As the plates were squeezed through the wringer, the raised dots on the plates made an impression on the paper, producing one page of a braille magazine he entitled the Christian Record. One hundred years later, the Christian Record is still being published, along with eight other periodicals.
