I have been questioned concerning how I do not put a space between opening nemeth and UEB parenthesis, if you could please clear my thinking up I would appreciate it.

EX.

1. (2+2 = 4 and this is the full answer.)

2. (This is the full answer: 2+2 = 4)

Would I put a space after the UEB opening parenthesis before the opening nemeth indicator for Ex. 1.?

For Ex. 2 I would put 2+2 = 4 space close nemeth (no space) and the closing parenthesis, no space between the closing nemeth and closing parenthesis.

Thank you so much!

A blank cell must always follow an opening Nemeth Code indicator, and a blank cell must always precede a Nemeth Code terminator; these blank cells do not represent any space in print. The spaces in print are transcribed separately.

So, the appropriate transcriptions for your examples are:

⠼⠁⠲⠀⠐⠣⠸⠩⠀⠼⠆⠬⠆⠀⠨⠅⠀⠼⠲⠀⠸⠱⠀⠯⠀⠹⠀⠊⠎⠀⠮⠀⠋⠥⠇⠇⠀⠁⠝⠎⠺⠻⠲⠐⠜

⠼⠃⠲⠀⠐⠣⠠⠹⠀⠊⠎⠀⠮⠀⠋⠥⠇⠇⠀⠁⠝⠎⠺⠻⠒⠀⠸⠩⠀⠼⠆⠬⠆⠀⠨⠅⠀⠼⠲⠀⠸⠱⠐⠜

where the opening parentheses are not followed by a print space, and the closing parentheses are not preceded by a print space.

Sometimes it helps me to think of the Nemeth switch indicators as three-cell symbols:

• opening Nemeth Code indicator: 456, 146, BlankCell
• Nemeth Code terminator: BlankCell, 456, 156

Thank you for your question! Please do let us know if you have follow-up concerns.
