Quick Question... I am transcribing a 1st grade text and the vendor wants it transcribed according to the Guidelines for Technical Material. (no encapsulated Nemeth) Will I format the book according to Braille Formats? or the format from Nemeth. For example, will directions be in 5/5 or 5/3?
There are no formal decisions regarding this. Some agencies are following formats (directions 5/5) when doing UEB Technical Materials. Some are following Nemeth formats (directions 5/3). I think the recommendation will be that if you are NOT doing Nemeth, you would NOT follow Nemeth formats. Sorry I don't have a more definite answer on this one.
