Braille Transcription

Braille is a tactile writing language which is made up using a series of raised dots. It enables blind and partially sighted people to read and access information using haptic perception. There are two forms of Braille, contracted Braille (Grade 2) which is used as standard and uncontracted Braille (Grade 1) which is a simpler form.

Our Braille transcription service

All Formats specialise in transcribing the written word into both contracted and uncontracted British Braille. We have a highly skilled team who are able to reformat and convert almost any standard document into Braille. All Braille that we produce conforms to current conventions and retains the content and context of the original document. We aim to provide a fast, affordable braille transcription service that doesn’t compromise on accuracy or quality.

What we can transcribe

We have experience in transcribing many different types of documents into Braille.

Here are a few examples of our braille transcription services:

Our process

We accept documents for braille transcription in many forms, electronic formats are preferred but we are able to scan and transcribe hard copies as well. Once a document is received, a member of the team will reformat the content and layout in a way that when converted into Braille it will make sense to the end user. Items such as tables and images are replaced with the relevant Braille equivalent.

The document is then transcribed into Braille and generated using one of our many advanced embossers. The final document is produced on high quality Braille paper and bound in the fashion preferred by the client. We are able to offer both single and double sided Braille (interpoint) and we offer a number of different binding options. All items are then checked by our experienced proof readers. We can send the item back to the client or directly to the end user.

Secure transcription and quality control

All Formats deals with highly sensitive confidential information on a regular basis. In order to ensure that sensitive information is protected all transcription work takes place in a secured environment. All of our staff follow strict security procedures, are bound by confidentiality agreements and undergo regular CRB checks.

We have rigorous quality control procedures in place to ensure that work carried out is of the highest possible standard at all times.
