The American Printing House for the Blind (APH), a world leader in creating learning solutions and pathways to success for children and adults who are blind or visually impaired, is seeking Braille Translation trainees to join our our Braille Transcription Services team.
Braille is a system of touch reading for the blind which employs six (6) dots evenly arranged in spaces or cells. Trainees will learn to convert printed materials into braille. The Braille Translation Trainee, an employee of the Braille Improvement Program, will participate in a training class that will result in National Library Service (NLS) Literary Braille certification. Trainees will learn to use publisher files, braille translation software and other braille translation skills for the purpose of providing these materials to the blind and visually impaired. Upon successful completion of the training program, the Trainee will transfer into a department within APH that requires Braille transcriber knowledge.
Note: Work location of training program will be hybrid and will transition to onsite full time, upon graduation.
Hours: 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday
