State Braillist

Oregon Textbook And Media Center Other | Secondary , Primary Salem Oregon United States

State braillist and tactile graphics specialist providing transcription of all classroom materials for braille-reading K-12 students in public schools throughout Oregon. Literary, math, science, music--all of it! Developed a template in Illustrator that, when used in conjunction with Acrobat and a dot-matrix embosser, allows for speedy, often onsite creation of tactile versions of print graphics and text--previously a time-consuming process that hampered students' equal access to materials.
