    I have a question regarding these markings. In the Rules of UEB 15.2.1 shows the stress and unstress markings within the word itself. In Section 13 in Braille Formats Samples 13-9, 13-10 and 13-12 the stress and unstress markings are shown above the words. Does it matter which one is used?

    Thank you,

    Susan

    Hi Susan,

    Did you mean to send an attachment as well? I need to see the print.

    Braille on,

    Hi Susan,

    So sorry for the delay! I was “waiting” for you to post the print, thinking I would be automatically notified. Not so, and I should have manually checked.

    This involves formatting, which means Braille Formats trumps UEB. Follow the BF guidelines and samples, brailling the poem twice with the stress and unstressed marks above the second transcription, with a transcriber’s note explaining.

    Braille on,

    Julie

    Thank you so much. I am glad I waited … I was betting on the other way! I need to go back and change it.
