WHAT WE DO
– THE NPO THAT LETS THE BLIND READ –
We believe that every visually impaired individual should be able to have access to the same information as sighted persons, ensuring equal opportunities.
HIGHLY EXPERIENCED TRANSCRIBERS
Our braille production services ensure your organisation is accessible to customers who rely on braille. We have experienced and passionate staff who deliver high-quality braille transcription. Creating a braille version of your print documentation is not as simple as selecting ‘braille’ in the braille translation software.
We edit the content and layout to ensure that it meets the current braille rules and best practices to ensure that your finished braille documents are of the highest quality. Visual material is converted to tactile graphics by our expert tactile graphic staff. Our transcribers and graphic designers are highly experienced in delivering high-quality braille transcriptions.

We can deliver all your braille document needs, including but not limited to:
All educational subjects, including Music, Math, and Science (tactile graphics included).
Annual reports for companies who are serious about inclusivity (braille and audio).
Menus for restaurants.

Braille Information Plates
Braille information plates e.g., Karoo Botanical Garden’s braille route.

Contact us to discuss your braille translation, embossing, and printing requirements.
We also offer de-brailling services for converting braille examination scripts to text.
Braille is transcribed using the Universal Braille Code (UBC).
PROFESSIONAL IN-HOUSE STUDIO
Audio recording is done in our professional in-house recording studios into the preferred format of your choice. We use the human voice in our recording studios, but you also can transcribe your document using synthetic voices. The finished audio files can be supplied on CD, USB stick, or downloadable MP3 file.
Audio Transcription involves the following steps:
Identify the perfect voice artist for your document.
Reading the document in one of our soundproof studios.
Editing and finalising the audio file to ensure the document sound is up to standard.
Delivering the audio file to our customers on time.
Contact us to discuss your audio needs.

Large Print Products
GRAPHICS & visuals adapted
Large print versions are produced according to international best practices and guidelines. Applying a larger typeface involves re-formatting and editing the entire document to ensure that your large print document is optimised for readability and layout.
Graphs and visual material are adapted by our graphic department. This process entails the simplification of complicated graphs and pictures to maximise the best use of the page whilst still ensuring accessibility.
