Deutsches Zentrum für barrierefreies Lesen (dzb lesen)

Production on Demand

The publishing house is happy to accept individual orders. We offer advice on realization and production details and can draw up a cost estimate or detailed offers. When producing your order, our focus is on quality and adherence to schedule. Be it conversions in contracted and uncontracted Braille, tactile reliefs or DAISY – or audio versions respectively – we are happy to accommodate your requests.

Among others the dzb lesen performs the following services:

  • print on paper or PVC-film
  • format and cover custom-made


  • transcription of graphical images (in form of data-file or printed image) in tactile relief images
  • manufacturing of relief films via vacuum-thermoforming process or on capsule paper as a less expensive alternative

Barrier free web and documents

We create barrier free/accessible digital documents (via voice output and Braille display) for visually impaired, blind or physically challenged persons.

The dzb lesen tests your websites with regard to accessibility and checks how accessible and user-friendly your web offers are.

The project BIK – the acronym stands for “barrier free information and communication” advises all interested people or companies on accessible web design and carries out web design projects.
