Braille Printing Services

LAS is pleased to announce that we now offer a Braille Conversion Service!!  

Braille is a system of raised dots that correspond with letters, symbols and numbers used by visually impaired people to read.  Graphs, charts and images may also be converted into tactile Braille, though each image is unique, and the outcome is not guaranteed.

If you need Braille produced for an event or presentation, please submit a request.  Please submit requests in either Word or PDF.   There is a nominal charge to cover production charges.  $1/ page printing and $4/book for binding.  There is no charge for course-related printing.
