How can I order embossed Braille books?
If the book description states that a hard braille copy is available from RNIB for loan or to purchase, you can contact the RNIB Helpline on 0300 123 9999 to order your copy.
If you do not have the tools to emboss books, a transcription service can help you. These services are independent of UK education collection.
Please contact RNIB's Transcription Team at University of Leeds by emailing LeedsTrans@rnib.org.uk - you will need to provide them with the book title, ISBN, link to the file on UK education collection, format/specification required and your contact details.
Schools, Sixth form colleges and other members
Please contact RNIB's Solutions Sales Team at Peterborough by emailing BusinessLink@rnib.org.uk - you will need to provide them with the book title, ISBN, link to the file on UK education collection, format/specification required and your contact details.
