APH can scan your paper braille or metal plates!

Single sided or interpoint, paper or metal master plates — APH can create electronic braille files for you!

Using a special process, APH can scan braille documents and provide you with a braille-ready file on disc, or via email. You can edit this file using braille transcribing software or send it directly to a braille embosser or notetaker. All scanned files are proofread by an NLS certified braillist. Note: We cannot scan tactile graphic portions of braille documents.
