Martin Haynes, Audio Document Transcriber at Scottish Braille Press

I spend most of my days at the Scottish Braille Press in a wee dark room reading aloud everything from bank statements right through to large documents and personal correspondence. We also produce and master the CDs before they are sent out. It is quite a small department, with only three members of staff. The job is a good fit for me as I’ve been a semi-pro musician for 25 years.
