Mission Statement

The mission of VBS is to train and support Volunteer Braille Transcribers, to improve the accuracy and effectiveness of their braille transcriptions through continuing education, and to provide transcribed materials for braille readers.

Description

Volunteer Braille Services was incorporated in 1968 for the purpose of training sighted volunteers to transcribe print into braille. We are a chartered non-profit 501c3 organization in the state of Minnesota.

We provide training to sighted volunteers that involves lessons and exercises leading to a certification from the Library of Congress for transcribing print to braille for people who read by touch. Training is free of charge and all materials are provided. Most braille in use today is transcribed by certified volunteer transcribers.
