    Hi Kathleen,

    One of the transcribers in our prison braille program has two final questions regarding the project he is working on ("First 50 Songs By the Beatles").

    The first question is regarding how chord symbols affect the use of runovers in a piano transcription - the full question with the print music is attached here.

    I'll create another post for the second question.

    Thank you so much for your help. The transcriber is gaining confidence in his music transcriptions and your guidance is so appreciated!

    Good morning!

    I don't see anything in the Code that prohibits a run-over in the right hand when you have chord symbols with piano music. Of course, you wouldn't be able to use a run-over in the left hand, so I would try and keep it to a minimum in the right hand as well.

    The page turn indicator would go on a line by itself indented two cells after the hand signs if it doesn't fit in both lines aligned. So your placement is correct in your examples! (Remember that you do not need the actual page number unless there are two or more print page turns on a single braille page.)
