When the economy slowed down I needed to speed up my ideas. On my Birthday January 4th, 2009 I started Braille Awards and Menu transcribing. This so happens to be the day the Louis Braille was born over 200 years ago. I needed to find a niche that I would be passionate about. When my kids were in middle school they had a blind skier come to the school and talk about himself being blind and his love for skiing. They gave this remarkable young man a beautiful certificate…. but it was behind glass. I knew I wanted to create awards for the blind. Braille transcribing has become a necessity. The most crucial fact of the matter is that visually impaired people cannot enjoy an independent dining experience without Braille menus and they can not feel independent if an important document has to be read to them. So this is what I do now. Well, I should say one of many jobs I do. This is what makes my job fun. I received a call from the Irvine Company to transcribe the Pelican Hills Hotel restaurant menus. What I love about this job is not only helping with the transcribing but the very important menu itself. I am working with a menu company to custom make the covers exactly like they have but in the standard size to fit the Braille Menu. The feel of the menu when it is presented and the way it is presented is very important. It’s our pleasure to offer menu printing in alternative formats to you so that your company can serve the visually impaired community. Imagine a visually impaired person is at your host stand right now. Can you provide them with the best of service and the respect and dignity of independence? With the help of Braille Awards, Document and Menu Transcribing, you can proudly show them and others how much you value their business, by having accessible Braille menus, important documents(or large print menus) ready and available for them. Imagine the positive response of your sighted customers when they see you care enough to provide alternative menus or important documents for those with visual impairments.
Become Efficient – Having a time-crunched server reading a menu to someone who is visually impaired is not efficient. Or when the visual impaired customer comes to you and they have to sign important documents. How nice that you took the time to have them transcribed into “their” words.
Improve Customer Service – By allowing your patrons who are blind and visually impaired access to your menus or documents, you’ve not only empowered them, but made them feel comfortable in a place they may otherwise not be comfortable. Happy visitors = repeat customers to your restaurant or business. After all, people don’t like to frequent places where they are not comfortable.
The fact that they do not have to be read to like a child is a reason why all restaurants and business should be required to have on hand Braille menus or Braille Documents. We all love to be independent and how thoughtful the restaurants and business that have taken the extra step to provide Braille menus or documents. We’ll translate your menu or documents into Braille or Large Print and deliver it to you bound with a durable cover. You can send us your menu or documents in a variety of formats including CD-ROM, e-mail attachment or regular mail. Does your menu change often? No problem – we can make the necessary edits and send you the updated menu very quickly.
