TCI Braille Transcribing Services

The Mountain View Braille Facility, located in Gatesville, offers a variety of textbook transcribing services for kindergarten through high school and post-secondary education. The facility can transcribe, emboss, thermoform tactile graphics and bind the entire project to complete a finished braille book. Additionally, the facility is able to convert foreign language textbooks to braille. The tactile graphics are generated digitally and by the collage method.

Staff and assigned participates are currently certified or are working toward their certifications from the Library of Congress. The program’s instruction and production are supported by the Library of Congress/National Federation for the Blind. Courses are provided for Literary (Unified English Braille), Nemeth, Music, Proofreading Literary, and Proofreading Math. These courses are designed to be self-paced, and upon successful completion participants earn a certification. Textbook Formatting and Tactile courses are based on the rule books from the Braille Authority of North America.
