Who We Are

Lighthouse International offers treatment and services for those with low vision.
The Print Access Center at Lighthouse International can convert all kinds of conventional printed material into an accessible format, by enlarging or scanning it, or by translating a document into braille. We can also download documents and resources from the Internet.

Braille Services are available to any person or company wishing to have material transcribed into braille.

Types of material transcribed include:

•menus, letters, and greeting cards
•college exams
•radio and TV scripts for commercials
•signage and brochures for museum exhibits
•law exam boards
•healthcare provider member handbooks

If material is received on disk, the charge is $1 per sheet, includes both front and back of page. If materials are in print format, the charge is $5.50 per page for first copy and then $1 per page, same as disk.

For braille transcription, contact Fran Libowitz via e-mail at or by phone at (212) 821-9689.
