California Transcribers and Educators for the Blind and Visually Impaired

CTEBVI is a unique organization of transcribers, educators, parents, students, paraeducators, librarians, product designers, and other advocates for individuals who are blind or visually impaired.

Members share their expertise through the resources on this site, in the pages of the CTEBVI JOURNAL, at our annual conference, and through special workshops held throughout the year. Professional connections develop into lasting friendships in a vibrant community dedicated to the exchange of information, techniques, and resources.
