Vista’s specialist transcription service can convert all types of print information into accessible formats.

Our comprehensive range of services, including audio format, modified large print and Braille, are available to purchase as a one-off piece of work or as part of an ongoing service. 

We can provide high quality audio transcriptions on a CD or MP3 to suit your requirements , with prices starting at £1.50 per minute for the first 1-10 copies of mastered/edited audio files and less thereafter. Our Braille transcription service is very competitive with Braille priced at 70p per sheet for the first 1-10 copies and less thereafter.

Make it clear

With over two million people in the UK living with significant sight loss, there is a growing need for businesses to provide fully transcribed and accessible materials to visually impaired customers. Since the introduction of the Equality Act in 2010, employers and providers of services are legally obliged to make their services accessible to all, including people with sight loss.
