The University has recently purchased a Braille embosser to assist blind students with the production of reading materials in Braille
The printer can have Word documents loaded onto it and will convert the content of these documents before embossing their contents onto Braille paper.
The embosser is located in the Library and is currently being tested. After testing, a number of key staff will be trained in its usage.
Whilst converstion to Braille will not be offered as a service, it is hoped that those who require it will be able to produce their own Braille with the assistance of their support workers.
