Volunteer Braille Transcriber

Only 5% of published information is available in formats like braille.  Sighted volunteers can help change that! Learn to transcribe print into braille, the tactile reading medium for those visually impaired people who cannot read print.

The Volunteer Braille Transcribers produce high quality braille documents to support CNIB and its clients. Applicants must complete the intensive 8-month Braille Transcription Course offered by CNIB (at no cost). This course requires a commitment of 15 hours per week to complete classes and assignments. The successful completion of the 22 lessons qualifies the student to write the Certification Exam which leads to certification in Unified English Braille (UEB), qualifying a person to transcribe English print materials into contracted braille.

Become part of the dedicated, highly motivated volunteer braille transcribers and help us to smash communication barriers for our clients by giving them access to the printed word.
