Braille Services

We provide professional braille printing and translation services including transcription and we can also produce audio services for those who can't read braille. This can be either braille to audio or we can record direct to audio from a script. While Braille isn't a language as such, the act of converting text to braille is still considered a translation process and if the end user can't understand english, this can complicate things further. In these cases we can translate the documents before braille printing them or provide an audio file instead.


What is Braille?

Braille is writing system for the blind that involves using embossed indentations in paper or card to create blocks of textures that can be felt by the fingertips of the reader. These indentations are clustered into rectangular blocks called "cells" that have tiny bumps called "dots" and each of these sequences represents a letter of the braille alphabet. Learning braille is crucial to literacy, further education and future employment for the blind so it has become an important part of life for many and an essential for their independance.
