    In the UEB Guidelines for Tactile Graphics, I notice that there are several references made to “See Supplement Example......”  I have been unable to locate the Supplement to which they are referring.  Would you please advise me as to how I can access it.

    Thanks in advance for your answer. Your help is appreciated!

    Thank you Julie for the question!
    The Supplement is very useful! It demonstrates TGs in several common media, including Tiger embossed, microcapsule, and collage masters that are thermoformed. The purpose of the TG Supplement is to show the application of the rules and how those rules can be expressed differently using several common production methods.
    The Supplement has been recently updated to include examples showing TGs with both <i>UEB Technical</i> and <i>Nemeth in a UEB Context</i>. This revised Supplement must go through the BANA (Braille Authority of North America) Review Process and then to the BANA Board for final approval. When that is accomplished, a designated production agency will make copies and it will be distributed through established channels.
    At present, we have no timeline that forecasts when the revised and updated Supplement will become available. However, announcements of availability will be widely distributed when the time comes.

    In other words (for anyone else who's curious), the 2010 supplement is no longer available. So unless you know someone who bought it before they pulled it from production, then you'll have to wait. In the meantime, I would suggest utilizing this forum for any questions that would otherwise be answered by checking the supplement (like how to handle coordinate grids with shading).

    Thanks for the vote of confidence!

    In the interim before BANA completes its work on a new tactile graphics supplement, we are very happy to help with questions related to TGs of any sort!
