I am attaching a copy of a question taken from a Pre-Calculus book. On the 2nd and 4th lines I have circled what apeears to be a caret in a superscript or raised position.
The context of the question indicates that this is a key or keystroke on a calculator.
Either way I am not sure how to do it in braille. Your help will be appreciated. Thanks you.
Thank you for your question and for including such a clear example.
You're quite right that the caret sign indicates a key-press on a calculator.
Now, there is a section (113.d) in the Nemeth Code that gives rules for transcribing a keystroke indicated in print by a sort of key/button shape with material inside it. However, in this case, print is not using any shape to indicate a key-press. So, I would follow print and present these representations without "keystroke" indicators.
For the caret, I suggest you do not braille it in a superscript position. Rather, its meaning will best be presented by keeping it on the baseline, as in the attached .BRF.
Thank you for your prompt reply to my question.
After reading your explanation, I attempted to locate section 113.d in the Nemeth Code relating to keystrokes. I was unable to locate any material. Could it be section 111.d in the 2007 update? This seems applicable to the situation.
If there is a section 113.d, where would I find the info.?
Thank you, again, for your help.
