Audio Production  

The Nebraska Library Commission Talking Book and Braille Service recording studios are available for spoken-word recording. The service includes use of a digital audio recording studio, assistance from an NLC staff member who will operate recording equipment and provide technical advice, as well as one copy of the finished product on CD or DVD. The organization requesting service would provide its own reader and two copies of the script.

Studio production and post-production: $50.00 per hour.

Braille Embossing  

The Nebraska Library Commission Talking Book and Braille Service braille embossing service will emboss Microsoft Word documents or an ASCII (DOS text) files. The organization requesting service should submit the document to be embossed on a 3 1/2" floppy disc or a flash drive. Time required for completion of projects is determined by length of document, number of copies requested, current volume of usage, and overall staff workload.

Cost: $0.04 per braille page.

To estimate cost, figure one page of text, double-spaced, equals approximately four pages of braille.


Government agencies and nonprofits will generally be billed on a monthly basis. If fees are less than $10.00, cumulative charges will be billed during the month when the total reaches or exceeds that amount. An invoice will be sent at least once a year.
