    I’m transcribing precalculus material in UEB with Nemeth code.  Now that I’ve reached a section discussing finding the  area of triangles, they are using a different font to distinguish the A for Area from the A labeling a vertex.  I’ve attached a page where the special A for area is seen everywhere and the standard italicized A for the vertex can be seen on the first line under EXAMPLE 4 (triangle ABC).  Should I keep this distinction in braille?  And if so, how would you suggest I do that?  Italicize it?  Script A?

    Thanks for your help!

    Good catch!

    That definitely looks like a distinction that you should retain. I believe I’d use the script A for the special “Area” A.

    Thank you!!!  That’s what I had done, but that script A just seemed to complicate things making me nervous about my decision.  It’s so helpful getting a second opinion!
