We are a service for anyone who has difficulty reading printed material. Our services include transcription into alternative formats, a fortnightly talking newspaper, plus advice and information.
About the service
We work together with charities, groups and organisations to provide a wide range of services to anyone who needs support.
If reading standard size print is difficult for you, we are here to help. For a minimal charge, Kirklees Transcription Service (KTS) can transcribe information into the alternative format of your choice.
Kirklees Transcription Service also has a drop-in service providing support and information about issues related to visual impairment.
We can offer:
- Information leaflets in various formats
- Contact details for local and national organisations
- Specialist equipment catalogues
- Someone to talk to
No appointment necessary
