Orange County, Calif. (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
GMR Transcription, a global leader in the transcription industry, now offers braille transcription in addition to its large list of services. The company is doing so both in response to numerous requests and in its efforts to expand its services to be helpful to more people across the country.
Braille is tactile writing system used by blind and visually impaired to read, write and for communication. According to a preliminary report by National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), an estimated 21.2 million adult Americans reported they either have trouble seeing, even when wearing glasses or corrective lenses, or are unable to see at all.
GMR Transcription now offers audio-to-braille and text-to-braille transcription services, as the company has experienced braille transcriptionists with expertise in transcribing both. They have also hired blind transcriptionists to help with braille transcription to ensure accuracy. These services include but are not limited to: audio files, videos, lectures, textbooks, novels, college notes, invitations, menus, pamphlets/brochures, meeting minutes, instruction manuals and more.
“We’ve been looking into this for the past couple of years and are very excited to finally offer braille transcription,” said Ajay Prasad, president and founder of GMR Transcription. “We know that braille transcription will help the blind and visually impaired gain access to content that they wouldn’t be able to otherwise. And in this age we live in, that access is vital.”
GMR Transcription has gained a reputation in the industry for their accurate transcriptions, quick turnaround times and affordable pricing. They have a team of dedicated and experienced transcriptionists and a separate wing that will now focus on braille transcription.
