    I have this IPv6 address format (see below) to deal with in my transcription. They are hexadecimal number fields separated by colons. I've attached an explanation that I found on the internet for clarity. I also did a test in simbraille at the bottom of the attachment of the highlighted IPv6 address. (For some reason, simbraille doesn't seem to work for me in this forum.) Can you please tell me if I'm on the right track? The fact that there are both uppercase and lowercase letters seems to be insignificant so I will mention the issue in a TN but transcribe them all as lowercase.

    Hi Laurie. This project has returned to haunt us, I see. Back in December we decided to switch to Nemeth Code for the IP addresses because they are being used in math context with the equals sign. Your transcription of 2001:db8:130F::9C0:876A:130B looks good to me. It's hard to see all those punctuation indicators and numeric indicators when one of the highlights of the Nemeth Code is its compactness, but I see no other way around this. Good job.



    So you remembered this project. It's been a thrill a minute. 🙂  Fortunately these addresses don't come up very often. Thanks Lindy.
