We are focusing on education this month on our blog. We have shared some information about other professionals this week, and today we'll talk about Certified Braille Transcriptionists.
Braille is the way that most people with a significant vision loss use to read and also to write. Certified Braille Transcriptionists prepare textbooks and other forms in braille so the student can read them. It's important to braille everything correctly, just as writers need to spell correctly, so there is an extensive training course for these professionals.
Here is an article about braille transcribers, if you would like more information. (American Foundation for the Blind)
