The cost for this service is $15 per hour plus 15 cents per braille page. Comb binding and labeling cost $3 per volume. To estimate the cost of your braille project:

  • Figure approximately $1.25 per braille page
  • Expect each print page to equal approximately three braille pages
  • Remember that complexity of the material affects cost. Tables and other special formatting will be more costly than straight text
  • Remember that submission format will affect cost. Material that must be scanned or entered by keyboard will cost more than material received in electronic formats

Be sure to allow adequate time for your materials to be braille-translated, embossed, and shipped to you in time for your anticipated use.

Materials can also be duplicated in large print and electronic media.
