A Tour of National Braille Press

Producing braille begins with transcription. Transcriptionists use special software, such as Duxbury, to transcribe written/print words into braille code. Most books arrive at NBP in hard copy and are scanned into a digital file, although some do arrive digitally. Braille code looks similar to HTML and other computer coding, using different sequences for complex formatting of braille letters, words, paragraphs, and pages. Transcriptionists need to look at all the pages, fix contractions, number the pages, and format the words center, bold, italic, etc before the braille copy is reviewed by a proofreader.

Our Staff

One fourth of our staff has a disability, predominantly blindness, filling positions at all levels. A fundamental belief at NBP is that blind people can, want to, and should work for companies that value talent and hard work above all.Our transcribers and proofreaders ensure the highest quality braille materials. All of our transcribers are certified by the Library of Congress and have competencies in one or more of the following codes: literary, Nemeth, computer, and music braille. Our proofreaders are braille readers, also certified by the Library of Congress, and collectively bring over 80 years of experience to the job.
