The Process

Ship Your Board Book to Get Braille

Our experienced braille transcribers will meticulously translate the text of the story into a braille format, adhering to established braille standards and guidelines.

Image Descriptions Added

In addition to transcribing the text, the transcribers will also provide detailed descriptions of the illustrations and images present in the book. These descriptions are consistently crafted to paint a vivid picture in the minds of young readers, enabling them to visualize the scenes and characters through the power of words.

Finishing Touches

Once the braille transcriptions are complete, the next step involves embossing the braille onto our Custom Adhesive Braille Overlays and carefully aligning and adhering them to the corresponding pages of the board book.

Our Custom Adhesive Braille Overlays are crystal clear and do not obstruct the view of the text or graphics in the book.
