Please advise me on how I would braille the colored dots before the Vocabulary words. Would I follow print for the entry then manually insert my guide word OR would I list the entry and move the dot to after the entry word?
I am not clear about what you are asking about. Are you asking about ths actual glossary? Does the actual glossary include these colored bullets? Or are you asking about how to do this particular page with the boxes and the arrows? Or did you add the boxes with the arrows? Or are you asking about just colored bullets? How would I tell that?
What is the question here? Please let us know and I'll try to help.
I'm not concerned about the colored bullet. That is easy but I can't address until I understand this further. You also mentioned guide words. The concern here is the BOXES and the ARROWS. Does every page of the glossary also have those? THIS is what makes the difference in formatting this, especially in regard to guide words. As soon as you can help me understand that, I can make a suggestion about the colored bullets.
Are these boxes and arrows also on every page of the glossary?
Thank you! That's what I meant. I thought the boxes and arrows were on the actual print page and now I see you added that to explain the meaning of the bullets.
Even though these look like bullets, the text identifies them as dots, and that should usage should be followed in braille. I would think of these as icons which the transcriber creates with a shape indicator, rather than bullets. You might want to label these yd for yellow dot, etc. Place them as in print, preceding the entry followed by a space. List the icons in special symbols. Transcribe the boxed material at the top of the page, right after main heading, so the reader will have that information. If the box is repeated on every print page, I would NOT repeat it in braille, unless the information in that box changes, which is unlikely.
Do not use the dots in guide words. Transcribe guide words as if the dots weren't there at all.
