    In the 3 examples shown, there is displayed computer notation that will be transcribed with the necessary indentations as shown in print.

    The Grade 1 passage indicator will precede the text.

    Question: Is it necessary to switch to the Nemeth Code for items such as a = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] and a[x] in Sample 1?

    OR for  option_f = False and i = 1 in Sample 2?

    OR for the matrix in Sample 3?

    A = [[1, 4 ,5, 12],
         [-5, 8, 9, 0],
    [-6, 7, 11, 19,]]

    It seems that the Nemeth Switch indicators will be used extensively in Sample 3.

    In sample 3 would we use the one word switch indicator for the word “print”, I assume yes?

    As a final question:

    Since we have used the Grade I passage indicator in the beginning, does its effect extend through the inserted Nemeth portions, or do we have to terminate the grade 1 passage for the Nemeth sections?

    When transcribing computer notation using Nemeth within UEB contexts, and the Nemeth Switch indicators are used for technical text, which quotation marks would be used for the Nemeth and UEB sections?

    e.g.:

    dollars = input(“Enter dollars: “)
    print “You have %d” % dollar

    Is it okay to have two different symbols for the same quotation marks? Since in UEB we are using the dot 6, 2356 for the non-directional quotes which does not exist in the Nemeth Code.

    These are important questions, and you are certainly not the only transcriber struggling with their like.

    I am conferring with others and will get back to you with what thoughts/suggestions we have.
