I am a teacher consultant for Visually Impaired students and in the last couple years I received my Lit Braille Transcription certificate. Long story short, unlike most areas, the county I work in has lost VI students so my caseload has decreased drastically. My full time teaching job maybe in jeopardy. I love Braille so I would like to increase my work in transcription and possibly do so as a independent transcriber. Can anyone give me an idea of the amount people charge for doing Braille transcription work?
Many transcribers charge by the page and prices vary according to the type of transcription. If you have not done much transcribing, my suggestion would be to find a group you can volunteer with and brush up on your skills before seeking contract work. With the implementation on Unified English Braille, possessing knowledge of and a good solid understanding in UEB is essential.
