There are two types of Braille. Grade 1 Braille is un-contracted and used mostly for new Braille readers. Grade2 Braille is the most widely accepted form of Braille. It takes up less space on the page due to the contractions. We can produce Braille in either grade, printed single-sided or double-sided on A4 Braille paper.
Focus on Vision C.I.C. recommends and uses a simple, clear and legible Sans Serif style fonts such as Arial or Tahoma. The original text is transcribed and reformatted without destroying the original context or content of the document. We use a standard font size of 20 points in order to meet the needs of as many users as possible.
We offer a comprehensive reading service. The audio recording is separated into tracks if required and then burned to CD, which will play on any standard audio CD player, Personal Computer or laptop. We can produce visual labels for the CDs and provide both visual and Braille labels for the library boxes.
