 Braille Clinic

This day-long workshop is designed for ESD and District employees who transcribe classroom materials for students within Oregon. This training will provide an opportunity for transcribers to develop a "community of Braillists", working toward the goal of providing uniformity in Braille services across the state. Braille providers of all skill and experience levels are encouraged to participate.

Agenda:

Demonstration of the functionality of Braille2000 translation software along with tips and tricks to make the most efficient use of your transcription time

Components of new and revised Braille codes and guidelines will be highlighted and summarized as they specifically pertain to daily worksheets and other ancillary materials

Discussion of resources available to transcribers

Demonstration of computer-generated tactile graphics

PRESENTED BY: Trumbull Ogilby and Peggy Spiess, OTMC Braillists

COST: Free! Mileage reimbursement for participants will be given to program (carpooling encouraged)
