A Variety of Braille Documents Are Available
Whether you’re looking for a one-time braille transcription or need regularly monthly customer communications, Braille Works is here to serve your company. Here are some examples of the braille documents we produce:
Transcribing Braille Documents
Braille Works transcribes materials in many languages including English, Spanish, French, Italian, and German. Our braille transcription process meets or exceeds the standards set forth by the Braille Authority of North America (BANA) and all of the braille documents we produce retain the content and context of the original document.
Grade 1 (uncontracted) and Grade 2 (contracted) are the two most common types of braille. Here at Braille Works we typically transcribe documents in contracted Grade 2 braille. However, Grade 1 braille transcription is also available upon request.

You’re also welcome to give us a call at (800) 258-7544 if you prefer phone communications; one of our friendly customer care representatives will be happy to speak with you and discuss your company’s needs for braille documents.
After your request is received we will reply to you by email within 24 hours, Monday through Friday. Requests submitted over the weekend will be handled the following Monday. Once details like shipping/billing addresses, quantity, finishing options and pricing are agreed upon, we will add your order to our production list right away.
Next, a skilled member of our braille transcription department converts your documents into braille while reformatting the content and layout so it makes sense to the braille reader. Elements such as tables, graphs and images are properly formatted in braille for effortless reading. Our braille documents have been tested by people who are blind and developed to provide the best possible structure for ease of reading.
Once your documents are transcribed and proofread, they are embossed onto top quality braille paper using one of our in-house state-of-the-art braille embossers. The finished braille documents are checked for accuracy again and packaged for shipping. Then we ship your materials back to you or directly to your customer. The choice is yours.
Binding Options for Braille Documents
Several methods of binding are available. Your Braille Works representative will review the options with you to determine the best method of binding for your projects.
Pricing for Braille Documents
Braille transcription fees vary based on the complexity of the project and the binding option you choose. Documents that include tables, charts or graphs are considered to be more complex than simple text documents. We seek to keep the cost of braille documents economical for your business because we appreciate how valuable braille is to your customers.
