Currency Reader Information


The Bureau of Engraving and Printing, in paternship with the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped, is distributing talking currency identifiers to people who are visually impaired. The currency reader, called iBill, announces the denomination of US paper currency by speaking, vibrating, or playing distinctive tones.

If you would like to attend a demonstration of the device at the Andrew Heiskell Library, contact Chancey Fleet at 212-621-0627.

If you would like to sign up to receive a currency reader, you may download an application from the BEP website. If you would like an application mailed to you, if you need a replacement device, or are unsure if your device is working, contact the Bureau of Engraving and Printing at  1-844-815-9388
