Welcome to Transcribing With Braille2000 As A Blind Person. My name is Jared Rimer. On these pages, I will be talking about learning how to Transcribe with Braille2000 as a blind person. I will also give you tips I've learned while taking the Braille Transcription course and learning Braille2000 at the same time.

Also, I will provide a tutorial via audio that will include demos of some of the concepts.

What Got Me Started With Braille2000?

You're probably wondering what got me started with Braille2000? In late 2018, I decided to get started with the certification of braille transcribing. To do this, I needed to sign up with the certifying authority. Because I don't have a mentor, the authority assigned me an instructor, and I've been progressing through the course.

While I'm blind myself and use assistive technology, Braille2000 did read my assignments while in print view with no problems. Within these pages, I'll discuss the difficulties I've had especially after continuing to fail because of the inconsistancies in my files as I relied strictly on the feedback I got from Jaws and it was not enough.

What Do You Have to Offer?

Another great question! I'm offering a very comprehensive solution which is always being worked on. In early 2019, I started beta testing an assistant which is still being polished today. I'll talk about this more in detail as the web site is built out.

I hope you enjoy your stay, and thanks so much for reading this web site.
