Braille & Audio Production
The accessible media production service transcribes a range of items including computer files, printed books or existing recordings (including analogue tapes) into Braille and/or audio formats on request.
We convert items for individuals as well as businesses, community groups, government departments, educational institutions and members of the public. Items commonly requested include:
- Texts and examination papers for tertiary students
- Government reports
- Cookery books
- Vocational materials
- Bus and train timetables
- Greeting cards for a friend or relative who is vision impaired
- Children’s story books.
This service also produces tactile maps, diagrams, and adhesive Braille labels, which are applied to household items and also placed over the print in children’s books to enable both people who are sighted and those with a vision impairment to read a book together.
