Media Conversion Process

What makes gh unique is our Media Conversion Process (MCP) which produces a variety of traditional and electronic accessible media formats created from an inaccessible format such as print books, PDF's, and many others. By taking the inaccessible document and converting it into a proprietary XML format unigue to gh, we are able to output multiple formats including Braille, large print, and tactile graphics. In addition MCP outputs XML-based electronic formats such as Digital Talking Books, NIMAS file sets, and high-stakes test material.

gh is dedicated to being a leader in quality, rapid turnaround time, and competitive pricing. Using the MCP, gh continues to improve and refine these areas in a model that allows us to translate your inaccessible material once and produce six different forms of accessible media faster then ever before.
