This month, we’ll continue to offer our three 15-minute length webinars at no cost. These are open to anyone with an internet connection anywhere in the world. Our monthly Formats Friday webinar focuses on the newest Braille Formats code, while our Music Monday webinar offers music transcribers a look into the Music Braille code. Our third webinar, which we’ve nicknamed Braille Bytes, offers a different rotating topic each month–this month we’ll be discussing Computer-Assisted Transcription.

The webinars are offered on a first come, first serve basis. There is no need to register in advance. Simply join in by using the links below, a few minutes before start time.

Music Mondays – The Slur, Part 1
Presenter: Patrick Janson
Monday, November 12 at 1:00p EST

Description: Slurs in print music are pretty straight-forward. However, in braille they have all sorts of uses and rules in vocal, instrumental and piano music, with numerous variations of braille symbols. This webinar will endeavor to make it all crystal clear.

This is the first of a two-part webinar. We’ll be covering the second part in December.
