Envision to participate in study about paper money

Envision – a Wichita-based organization that focuses on employment and rehabilitation for the blind – will participate in a nationwide study on how well those with sight issues can use paper currency, according to a news release.

The study will help determine if there is a need to change U.S. paper money, according to the release.
