    I'm brailling a Math text. There is a page with many hieroglyphics used for words (29). In addition there are symbols for numerals. I can't possibly draw the pictures meaningfully. Do you have any suggestions for substitutions that would be appropriate?
    Thanks in advance for your help. I am attaching a pix.

    This should work out just fine if you use the words supplied in the chart. I would include a transcriber's note stating
    the following:
    (TN) The chart is brailled as a list. The English letter equivalent is followed by the hieroglypic label.

    A Eagle (1)
    A Arm (2)
    B Foot (3)

    If a puzzle follows, I would include the numeral in parentheses with each hieroglyph name; that will make it easier for the student to locate the item since the hieroglyphics are not in English alphabetical order.

    Thanks, Lindy.
    I think that'll work for me.
