Braille translator at work in Brookings

Charis Ubben / Brookings Register
Cobb, born in Sioux Falls and raised in California, has been working in Braille for about seven years. He completed 20 lessons of self-paced coursework to receive his certification and apprenticed to a Braille transcription company for two years. Cobb said Braille transcription isn't taught in traditional schools, and in 2010 the U.S. had a shortage of about 1,000 transcribers.
