If not, welcome to the world of "is land" being read instead of

>high cost of braille paper is because it's rarely used compared with
The difference between standard office paper and Braille paper:
Size: 8 1/2x11 versus 11x11 inches;
Weight: 20 # versus 100#;
Compared to other paper of that size, or of that weight, it is
competitively priced. Increasing the market won't substantially lower
the cost of the paper.
