I have a UEB math workbook with 2 different omissions. A blank line and a blank space are used in print.
Is is necessary to distinguish between them? BF 10.6.1 instructs us to use 3 dot 5s for blanks but the differences are not identified in print as to their use. I would prefer to use the underscore for both. I've included 2 sets of examples. The first set shows parentheses with a blank space between them using 3 dot 5s.
Should a grade 1 indicator be used between the last of the 3 dots and the parenthesis?
Also, when print shows a space between the parentheses is the blank space shown in braille?
I get different opinions from different proofreaders on these questions and would appreciate some guidance as to which is preferred. In case the copied braille doesn't show properly I've attached a .doc file.
Sorry - I see now that this information was in your original email. I am not an expert on UEB Technical, but it seems you should be using the symbols in section 3.6 of the Guidelines for Technical Materials...there is a visible space symbol used for an omission that has no print symbol (dots 346). I do not believe the three dot 5s would be appropriate here. I would also suggest you post this in the UEB Math forum for confirmation.
