    Has anyone heard if there is likely to be a formal course manual for UEB Nemeth beyond the initial Guidelines for Nemeth in UEB Context?

    Yes, there is a course for UEB with Nemeth, available from the National Federation of the Blind. The course is based on the proposed new Nemeth Code. Enrolled students will be assigned a grader through the NFB and will receive lesson exercises from their grader.

    Once the new code is adopted and published, certification will be available in UEB with Nemeth.

    The lessons are available for anyone to download. They are still being edited and updated frequently, so people are encouraged to revisit the website often to check for newer files. Current Nemeth transcribers are not to use the new symbols and rules until the code book is released.

    The course files can be downloaded from this location:

    To clarify, current Nemeth transcribers have been transcribing in UEB with Nemeth following the "Guidance" document that has been in use since UEB was adopted. The new code will be introducing some new rules and some new braille symbols. These new rules and symbols are being taught in the lesson manual. Those are the items that a current transcriber may not use until the Nemeth Code is released.
