    We have a student who wants to begin his manuscript with Chapter 8 instead of at the beginning. We understand he must transcribe all pages at the beginning of the book, such as dedication, acknowledgments, preface, etc., but he wants to begin at that point in the book.
    1. Is that acceptable?
    2. If so, is there anything about the table of contents that should be noted or a transcriber's note?

    Thank you for your response to this question.

    Hello there,

    There is nothing in the Instruction Manual that says you must start your certification manual with Chapter One of your book. As long as preliminary pages are in order, it is my understanding that you may start anywhere. If your student starts at Chapter Eight, that must be reflected in the Table of Contents. Just remember, the certification manuscript is a test of the rules and format for literary braille and directions are given in Chapter 20.

    I hope this helps. Happy New Year!
