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.
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.
Looking to get involved? We are always looking for volunteers to train as Certified Braille Transcribers. Classes start every Fall.
Need materials transcribed? We will transcribe textbooks, (all subjects), materials and foreign language materials.
Looking for something to read? Check out ourVeryBumpyStoriesLibrary, a print/braille and bound volume library for visually impaired children and young adults.
