What is the time frame for producing Braille materials?

The time frame for producing braille materials varies widely from project to project depending on its size and complexity. Orders for Math/Science textbooks with an average amount of tactile graphics should be placed at least two and a half to three months before the class start date. Less complex transcriptions with fewer tactile graphics can be produced somewhat faster but it is still a very time consuming process.
