A blank cell must always follow an opening Nemeth Code indicator, and a blank cell must always precede a Nemeth Code terminator; these blank cells do not represent any space in print. The spaces in print are transcribed separately.

So, the appropriate transcriptions for your examples are:

⠼⠁⠲⠀⠐⠣⠸⠩⠀⠼⠆⠬⠆⠀⠨⠅⠀⠼⠲⠀⠸⠱⠀⠯⠀⠹⠀⠊⠎⠀⠮⠀⠋⠥⠇⠇⠀⠁⠝⠎⠺⠻⠲⠐⠜

⠼⠃⠲⠀⠐⠣⠠⠹⠀⠊⠎⠀⠮⠀⠋⠥⠇⠇⠀⠁⠝⠎⠺⠻⠒⠀⠸⠩⠀⠼⠆⠬⠆⠀⠨⠅⠀⠼⠲⠀⠸⠱⠐⠜

where the opening parentheses are not followed by a print space, and the closing parentheses are not preceded by a print space.

Sometimes it helps me to think of the Nemeth switch indicators as three-cell symbols:

  • opening Nemeth Code indicator: 456, 146, BlankCell
  • Nemeth Code terminator: BlankCell, 456, 156

Thank you for your question! Please do let us know if you have follow-up concerns.
