I can’t find a rule anywhere that addresses tables of data which are essentially two columns but divided one or more times and shown across the page. Please see the attached.
Would you follow print in order to keep the table on one braille page or would you rearrange back into two columns that run onto a subsequent page?
If following print arrangement, would you use guide dots between the second and third column even though they are unrelated to each other? (2a: Would it be OK to mix the use of guide dots between related columns and no guide dots between unrelated columns within one columnar arrangement?)
I think I would follow print for the table examples you shared, where print has divided a table horizontally in order to make it take up less space. I would only do this if I could follow print exactly.
If a table’s content were such that I would have to divide the table vertically or have runovers in even one entry, then I would fall back on a simple braille table layout, even if that simple layout took up many braille pages.
I would not insert guide dots between unrelated columns. I hope the lack would help the reader to recognize the table’s layout. In other words, I believe it would only be accurate to use guide dots between related columns and no guide dots between unrelated columns within one columnar arrangement.
