Volunteer Braille ServicesVolunteer Braille Services
The mission of Volunteer Braille Services 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. VBS was incorporated in 1968 for the purpose of training sighted volunteers to transcribe print into braille. VBS offers free classes for Minnesota adults learning to transcribe print to braille for people in our communities who read by touch. Participants receive certification from the US Library of Congress in Unified English Braille Transcription.
