<p style="font-weight: 400;">Hi there! Thanks for the pdfs!</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">Reminder - in bar-over-bar format, a backward-numeral repeat may only be used if the original and the repeat are in the same parallel. (See Music Braille Code 19.7) So you can’t use the 4/3 repeat at measure 5. You can, however, use a measure number repeat – you could use the lower number 1-3 to show that those three measure repeat. If you do that, definitely braille out the right hand of measure 3. It’s too complicated to send the reader back to a repeat that has a different repeat in it!</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">The use of the bar line between 19 and 20 is appropriate, since there is a coinciding blank space in all 3 lines of the parallel in the middle of the measure. And yes, also use the hyphens here, too. Not overkill at all – it’s actually helpful, I believe. Same at measure 55. The way you’ve transcribed this is correct.</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">Just a couple of things that I spotted while looking over this for your specific question - You don’t need to use the page number within the music line after measure 67. It’s the only page turn over on the braille page, so the number isn’t necessary.</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">Be sure your dot 3 separators after your hand signs are indeed dot 3s and not dot 6s! (m. 67 popped out)</p>
Hope that helps!
