Each year VAVF, with sponsorship from the Florida Instructional Materials Center for the Visually Impaired (FIMC-VI), hosts a conference for braille transcribers, teachers of the visually impaired, and students who use braille. Workshop areas include use of the braille code for producing literary and mathematical reading materials, tactile graphics production, as well as a variety of other braille-related topics that could include braille instruction, scanning, braille proofreading, braille certification, and text book formatting. Many of the presenters are from regional VAVF groups. In addition, VAVF brings in national guest presenters who are experts in their unique fields of braille transcription software, tactile graphics production, and braille codes. Anyone interested in networking with the professionals, and/or producing braille and other tactile materials is welcome to attend.
