MediBuS was formed to meet the future requirements of the digital age. Members of this association include: producers of braille books, braille libraries, talking book libraries and associations for the blind in the German-speaking areas of Europe.

The copyright law in Germany contains an exception for the production of reading material for print disabled persons by non-profit organisations. In accordance with this exception, the producers of alternate formats pay a fee of 12 Euro per title to the Publishers Association.

The main goals of the Media Association include: building catalogues of all accessible materials, supporting braille and working together to convert and produce DAISY books.
