Braille Transcribers

Most states have private agencies or government agencies that offer Braille transcribing services. A good place to start is with the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.

  • The Library of Congress has compiled a directory, available in large print and Braille formats, which gives the names of volunteer groups and individuals who transcribe and record books and other reading materials for blind readers.
  • The listing is alphabetical by state and is called Volunteers Who Produce Books. Send for your free copy from the Library of Congress.
