Nemeth Within UEB Contexts, An Overview
Presenter: Kyle DeJute
Tuesday, April 23, 2019 at 12:30p EST

Description: When you’re using Nemeth Code with UEB, you’ve got questions:

1) What has to be in Nemeth Code?

2) Where do the code switch indicators go?

3) How does using Nemeth Code affect formatting?

This two-hour webinar will help you to answer these questions by showing how to apply the Guidance for Transcription Using the Nemeth Code within UEB Contexts, Approved April 2018 to a variety of examples.

The examples in this webinar are largely taken from the workshop Nemeth within UEB Contexts that has been presented at various NBA conferences over the last four years.This webinar is not intended to be an introduction to Nemeth Code, though a cell-by-cell explanation of the braille will be provided for every example.
