Transcribing documents into braille

Our braille transcription service goes through the following stages:

•    Your document is received. 
•    Our transcribers convert the document to braille.
•    The braille is checked by one of our proofing teams. 
•    Once the text is proofread and approved, the finished document is embossed, bound and delivered according to your instructions.
