The Value of Braille
Advantages of Braille Translation Services Companies wishing to produce documents for blind or visually-impaired individuals were once faced with the daunting task of training someone to operate a Braille punch machine.
Today, companies can choose from a number of specialist firms offering Braille translation services. Braille transcription can be time consuming, and isn't always cost-effective task for your in-house staff to undertake.
However, by obtaining Braille services from an external organisation, your firm can reap the rewards of offering Braille documentation without the associated hassles.
For starters, you'll be getting Braille translation directly from experts - people whose first business is providing quality Braille services, rather than filing or rounding up the lunch orders.
This means your customers, clients, members or visitors will be getting a first-class product that is accurate, user friendly and professional.
Also, by outsourcing your Braille translations, you're able to find a provider who can ensure your firm is complying with the latest industry standards, as well as legal requirements, for provision of Braille materials.
Braille Services for Modern Communication Though the Braille system itself was designed in the early 1800s, today's Braille translation services are far from old hat. Translations can be made into a wide variety of languages, and consultation-based adaptations are common on everything from bank statements to prescription medication.
The DDA requires that businesses make reasonable allowances to enable disabled people, including those who are blind or visually-impaired, the same access to services and products as those without disabilities. Braille translation services play a key role in the provision of equitable service - particularly where publications and periodical documents are concerned.
Though it's fair to say Braille services aren't required by every business in the Yellow Pages, it's reasonable to assume that Braille translation can make a positive contribution to your array of products and publications.
Whether it's the addition of Braille labelling to existing product lines, or providing a Braille version of your quarterly investors' newsletter - there's bound to be something your business could benefit from enhancing with Braille.
What's more, a number of firms specialising in traditional Braille transcription also offer other services of use to companies and organisations aiming to keep the UK's two-million-strong community of visually-impaired people in the loop.
There are transcription services for audio and large print versions of virtually any standard document, as well as options for converting your publications and promotional materials into new, cutting-edge formats.
