    I’m on chapter 26 of the Braille Music course and things are getting tricky! Does anybody have any suggestions on proofreading? Up to this point, I’ve been using different colored highlighters to systematically go through the exercises, highlighting different aspects I’m proofing. Now that the lines are so packed with information, even that is getting difficult! I’d love to know how other transcribers proof their work.
    Thanks!

    Hello, Kathleen.

    Alas, there are no shortcuts for proofreading music braille. Most transcribers agree that we spend two or three times as much time in proofreading as we spend on the original transcribing. If you will email me individually (musicbrl@earthlink.net)I’ll be happy to send you some material I put together for an NBA workshop. I think your color-coded highlighting is a very good idea.

    Cheers to you. I’m happy to hear that you are progressing so well in the course.
