Making Print Accessible for People with Vision Loss
At Lighthouse Guild’s Print Access Center, we provide Braille transcription and other services to convert a wide range of print materials into formats that are accessible for people who are blind or visually impaired. Examples of these materials include:
- Books, including textbooks
- Class notes
- Research materials
- Employee handbooks
- Business documents
- Explanation of benefits
- Professional and licensing examinations
Our services are available to individuals as well as businesses. Providing materials in accessible formats helps businesses comply with standards set by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and expands their communications to people with vision loss.
Braille Transcription Services: We offer Braille printing services and Braille translation services to convert all types of printed materials to Braille. Our certified Braille experts have received specialized training in Braille translation and stay abreast of the latest updates. They review all newly produced documents, such as Braille books, and edit them to ensure their accuracy.
