The Pinellas Braille Group will offer classes in braille transcription for free starting in September 2010, at the Temple Beth El, 400 Pasadena Ave S, St. Petersburg. The course runs for 9 months and will culminate in the participant receiving a Certification for Braille Transcription upon completion of a trial manuscript. The group brailles textbooks and other literature for visually-impaired school children in Florida and other places. The volunteer group also offers classes in digital audio recording and the creation of Tactile Graphics, pictures meant to be read by hand for the visually-impaired reader. For more information on Braille or the group or classes, please call 727-545-4724 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The classes are FREE and open to the public.
