WEBINARS ARCHIVE

We believe training should be available to those who need it, and we know not everyone can afford to travel for conferences. In recent years, the National Braille Association has been providing online training to braille transcribers and teachers of the visually impaired who want to learn from the comfort of their home or office.

The majority of our webinars are free and open to the public. A few times each month we conduct webinars on an array of topics that last only about 15 minutes each. All the webinars are recorded, and while live attendance is open to the public, current NBA members have full access to the archive of all the free webinars we’ve ever offered.

Paid Replays

The replay videos for the webinars in this section require a purchase. They range in duration from an hour-and-a-half to two-hours. To watch the paid webinar replays, click the link of the title you’re interested in, and you’ll be taken to Vimeo, where the video is hosted. From there, you can set up an account and purchase the webinar replay video with a credit card. You’ll only need to set up an account once, and the video can be downloaded, or streamed as many times as you’d like.
