Reading Braillists: Transcription 101

25th February 2017 @ 12:00 - 14:00

What really happens when you ask for a document in Braille? Join us in Reading on Saturday 25th February to meet two professional transcribers and find out for yourself.

If you have ever received a utility bill, bank statement, letter from your council or other document through the post in Braille, the chances are it has been produced by a professional Braille transcription company. But who decides which company, how the Braille will be translated, how the Braille should be laid out on the page, and how the document should be packaged? And more importantly, does transcription always go to plan? And what happens if things go wrong?

What about when you were at school? Did you get Braille Worksheets, handouts, exam papers some hard-working soul spent hours meticulously reformatting to make sense in Braille. And then you went and lost it? Who are these people and how do they interpret everything from algebra to zoology.

Join us for a fascinating insight into the world of Braille transcription.
