RNIB Transcription

RNIB Transcription Service Leeds

The RNIB Transcription Service Leeds is based within Disability Services and works in partnership with the University to provide transcription of academic material – print and inaccessible electronic source files – into large print, electronic text, braille, digital audio and tactile diagrams. All transcription is tailored to individual requirements. In addition, it has access to RNIB Bookshare – an online digital academic collection – which secures files from publishers and other transcription suppliers.

This service does not require DSA/A2W funding and early contact is to be encouraged as it can take time to produce transcription.

The Transcription Service is available to students (and members of staff) at Leeds University who have:

  • a visual impairment (blind or partially sighted)
  • a specific learning difficulty (such as dyslexia)
  • a neurodevelopmental disability (such as autism, ADHD)
  • a physical disability which affects use of printed materials.
