BRAILLE & LARGE PRINT SERVICES
In 1985, Metrolina Association for the Blind became the pioneering leader in providing Braille and large print statements and other documents for financial, utility and telecommunications corporations, and, in 2005, added auditory CD statements. We process about 18,000 monthly statements, in addition to single service documents and Braille textbook printing.
MAB's Accessible Braille Services include:
the mastering and resale of Braille and large print textbooks at primary and secondary levels
Braille, large print and audio CD monthly billing and account statement rendering
transcription and print/audio services for any one-time or infrequently required document, requiring one or multiple copies.
We work with our clients to find the most cost effective solutions for their needs. Unlike other modified statement service providers, we accept your existing style of statement or allow you to design your own statement. Documents may be received in electronic data files as encrypted data sent over public networks, data sent to a file transfer protocol drop box, or data sent over a dedicated data line. ABS also accepts paper hardcopies, which can be scanned and edited by our editors for production in Braille, large print and audio CD format. As a non-profit we are unique in the alternate printing industry in that all net revenues generated from our Braille, large print, and audio CD products are used directly by our organization to serve the needs of people who are learning to cope with the challenges of blindness and visual impairment. Therefore, being a business partner with MAB means that your dollars are doubly effective in addressing the needs of your customers who are blind or visually impaired.
