Have you always been intrigued with Braille, the language that helps the blind to “read?” Are you also looking for a new career in a field with a high demand for skilled workers? New Hampshire’s Dover Adult Learning Center of Strafford County is now offering two online courses that will instruct participants to understand and transcribe Braille.
“Beginning Braille Transcription” and “Intermediate Braille Transcription” are immediately available through the Center’s partnership with Education to Go, Inc., making it possible for participants to learn the course material at their own pace, and from the comfort of their own homes.
By completing these two courses, participants will be able to comfortably read and use the entire Literary Braille Code. Instruction includes how to use the 63 contractions of Grade II Braille, which shorten the space needed for Braille words. Also, participants will learn how to prepare for the Library of Congress Braille Transcriber’s Certification exam, which is essential for anyone seeking a career in Braille transcription.
