Personal Transcription

Whether it’s the magical place your favourite book used to take you, or special memories locked in letters and journals that you can no longer read, we understand the importance and power of the written word and how difficult it can be for you to read what you want, when you want.

Everyday life is full of print and the inability to read this can present significant barriers to leading an independent life. Our team at RNIB’s Personal Transcription Centre can help with removing these barriers. They can help you to stay in touch with your local community, continue to attend social groups and activities, enjoy your favourite hobby, or widen your horizons through education and travel, by simply taking your print and converting it into a format you can read yourself.

What formats do we offer?

•Audio in human voice or digitally generated synthetic speech, on CD, Daisy CD, or as an mp3 file
•Braille
•Large and giant print
•Electronic text
•Tactile diagrams and images
•Accessible sheet music and musical scores - Modified Stave notation
