    The problem that I am trying to transcribe is this:

    AC/HK = BC/JK … there are bars over AC and HK and BC and JK.

    I see in UEB Guidelines for Technical Math, Section 12 Bars and dots etc, over and under but I do not see a sample that applies to all that I have to do in this problem. At least I don’t think I see a sample that applies to all the problem! Please advise!

    Thank you for your question, Elizabeth.

    If I understand correctly, you are transcribing using UEB with NO Nemeth.

    Using UEB for technical material, I would use the braille in the attached image and BRF files.

    The first and third lines in those transcriptions are opening and closing grade 1 mode (the opening grade 1 passage indicator is a series of three dots 56, which must be preceded by the three-cell dot locator for use; the grade 1 terminator is dots 56, dot 3, and it also must be preceded by the dot locator for use).

    The braille cells in the second line are:

    • the opening general fraction indicator
    • a pair of braille grouping indicators around AC
    • the one-cell symbol for “bar over previous item”
    • the general fraction line
    • a pair of braille grouping indicators around HK
    • the one-cell symbol for “bar over previous item”
    • the closing general fraction indicator
    • blank cell
    • the two-cell equals sign
    • blank cell
    • the opening general fraction indicator
    • a pair of braille grouping indicators around BC
    • the one-cell symbol for “bar over previous item”
    • the general fraction line
    • a pair of braille grouping indicators around JK
    • the one-cell symbol for “bar over previous item”
    • the closing general fraction indicator

    Again this is the transcription of your print example using UEB for technical material.

    Does this help?
