Careers at National Braille Press

About the position: National Braille Press is seeking a dynamic and organized individual to work in the sales department of a well-established braille publishing company in Boston, Massachusetts. Responsibilities include data entry, maintaining spreadsheets and information, and other administrative duties. Knowledge of PC and Microsoft Word/Excel required. This is a full-time position in a demanding and fast-paced production environment.

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 Mission & History

NBP empowers the blind and visually impaired with programs, materials, and technology supporting braille literacy and learning through touch.
