Braille Transcription

We can produce Grade 1 (Uncontracted) and Grade 2 (Contracted) braille to suit your requirements.

Transcribing documents into braille

Our braille transcription service goes through the following stages:

  • Your document is received 

  • It is edited by one of our experienced editors who prepares the copy for our transcribers

  • Our transcribers convert the document to braille

  • The braille is checked by one of our proofing teams. Each team consists of a visually impaired braille reader and a sighted reader

  • Once the text is proof read and approved the finished document is embossed, bound and delivered according to your instructions

Binding and presentation

Finished documents can be produced as single-sided or double-sided braille and are available in a range of sizes and different bindings including treasury tagged, wire bound or wire stitched.

We have a variety of quality embossers and finishing equipment which allows us to produce your documents in quantities ranging from a single copy to tens of thousands of copies. We provide a tactile diagram service with the diagrams bound into the braille documents if required.

We can finish with our standard binding and covers to your specification. Alternatively we are happy to use pre-printed covers supplied.
