    Hello,
    I am pretty sure I have learned somewhere it is advised to put a note on the TN page along the lines of “Tactile graphics are produced according to the Guidelines and Standards for Tactile Graphics, 2010”. I cannot find where I have seen that. Can you refer me to a source, please? Also, is this just a suggestion or a new guideline?
    Thanks!
    Susan

    Hi Susan,
    You are correct. It was in a BANA press release from April 2014. I’ll quote and then add the link below it.

    Approved a recommendation from the Tactile Graphics Technical Committee that any braille volume containing one or more tactile graphics should contain a note on the Transcriber’s Notes page stating: “The Guidelines and Standards for Tactile Graphics, 2010 was used in the preparation of the tactile graphics.”

    Hope this helps …
