    Good morning!

    I am transcribing this book for a 4th grader in UEB with Nemeth. Could you look at the attachment please, and give me some advice about how you would transcribe the boxes representing the omissions? I was unsure if I should make tactile boxes, use general omission signs, or use  square symbols of shape (ed)4 to represent them.

    Thank you very much!

    Good day, Susan!

    For the example you sent (Thank you for the scan!), and others like it, I would suggest using square symbols of shape to represent the boxes representing omission.

    This preserves the print's use of "boxes" and lets the reader know how many omissions are indicated.

    Since this transcription is for a 4th-grader, the square symbols of shape should be appropriate to the student's knowledge of Nemeth.

    If  you have further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to share them.

    Thank you so much! That is very helpful. Just a follow-up--for the use of the Nemeth symbols of shape for the square, I am going to assume that for the 5 digit number that I would just put the symbols of shape and nemeth comma adjacent to one another unspaced?
