SUBJECT: Tables; Line 25 identifier
27 September 2017
I am seeking additional thoughts, comments, or guidance related to the presentation of sequentially numbered tables in a chemistry (Nemeth) book.
The guidelines state:
Braille Formats §11.3.2(b) When a sequentially numbered table is longer than one braille page, repeat and center the table number on line 25 of each succeeding braille page, followed by "(cont.)".
Guidance for Transcription Using the Nemeth Code within UEB Context, Additional Guidelines §3. Titles for figures, tables, sections, etc. (such as “Figure 1”) are transcribed in UEB.
In a situation where a lengthy, sequentially numbered table consisting entirely of material required to be presented within Nemeth switch indicators (following the title and transcriber's note) is being presented in a stairstep format how should the line 25 identifier be brailled, in Nemeth or UEB?
