Are there criteria for deciding when crossword puzzles (and other types of puzzles) are produced as tactiles versus being brailled according to section 19 of Braille Formats? The Braille Formats guidelines are quite specific, so I’m wondering how much latitude other agencies allow in deciding the best way to represent this material.
I don’t have a wide audience to pool for how crossword puzzles are usually produced, but the feedback I’ve received from members of my committee is that they have never seen or produced a crossword as a tactile graphic.
I agree that the guidelines in section 19 of Braille Formats are quite specific, and they do not have any provision for creating crosswords tactilely. I would recommend brailling crossword puzzles according to Braille Formats.
