The mission of Volunteer Braille Services is: 

to train and support Volunteer Braille Transcribers,  

 to improve the accuracy and effectiveness of their braille transcriptions through continuing education, and  

 to provide transcribed materials for braille readers.   

Volunteer Braille Services was incorporated in 1968 for the purpose of training sighted volunteers to transcribe print into braille. We are a chartered non-profit 501c3 organization in the state of Minnesota.
