When transcribing double spaced volumes, are the Special Symbols and Transcriber's Notes pages also double spaced?
BANA Guidelines for the Transcription of Early Educational Materials from Print to Braille, 1.4.1 says "Kindergarten and first grade: Double-space with the following exceptions: a. single-space title page and supplementary title pages." Braille format guidelines 1.7.2 says exceptions to double spacing includes "c. Single-space title pages and supplementary title pages." I understood that to mean only single-spacing the title page and supplemental title pages (when title page information runs over to braille page t2), and that the Specials Symbols and Transcriber's Notes pages should be double spaced like the rest of the volume.
I apologize for not replying sooner - our system glitched and this just popped up!
My understanding was that only the title page(s) were single spaced. But Bonnie Read wrote the rules 🙂 This confuses me as well. Just reading the guidelines, I would say only the title pages...and the guidelines are what we should follow.
Thank you for answering this but I am still a little confused. I need more clarification. Are the Special Symbols Pages and Transcriber's Notes Pages considered Title Pages? Do they need to be single or double spaced?
