com/), a new kind of voice-to-text transcription company, provides best-in-class transcription accuracy, turnaround, and rates by using a hybrid model of speech processing technology plus a crowd-sourced human transcriber
The researchers also had no information on the sources from which the textbooks were created (such as NIMAS files or directly from print) because of the number of transcribers
and the limited information provided in the transcription.
For the purposes of analysis, the participants were grouped on the basis of their roles: teachers of students with visual impairments (n = 80), transcribers
and paraeducators (n = 23), transcribers
and braillists (n = 46) and paraeducators (n = 17).
The implementation of the Braille transcriber
and proofreader certification program is the latest manifestation of this commitment, which has also included the passage of important legislation mandating Braille instruction for blind children and the passage just this past summer of legislation authorizing the minting of a commemorative coin in honor of Louis Braille.
states do not have a sufficient number of certified braille transcribers

With the RightNow solution, transcribers
can obtain answers to almost all their questions through the Web any time of the day or night.

As new Braille Textbook Transcribers
are trained and available for work, students who are blind or have vision loss will no longer wait months for textbooks to be transcribed, allowing them access to an education equal to that of their sighted peers.
