    Is it okay to make minor changes to print wording without using a TN? For example, change "on the right" to "on the next page".

    Thanks for you help!


    No, not any more. See 1.1.4 A transcriber does not edit the text. That's exactly what it means. If something is on the right in print and actually located in braille on the next page, transcribe what the print says and then add a TN to say that the item is loccated in braille on the next page or wherever the reader can expect to find it. Don't get carried away. If the item on the right actually just follows in braille, don't add a TN.
