Include a transcriber’s note explaining the print presentation and what you are going to include in braille—
The print shows a weather map of the United States, parts of Canada and Mexico that includes the state boundaries, major city names, temperatures for each city, location of fronts, weather condition, wind speed, cloud cover, location of High/Low pressure areas and location of a hurricane. The braille map shows an outline of the United State, the location of fronts, High/Low pressure positions, position of the hurricane and an example of how print symbols are used on a weather map.
I would then present an outline of the map as shown in print but with only the fronts, H/L, and hurricane. You would need a key with explanations for all this information and an example of how the print symbols are used on a weather map (the last box on the right). edited by dspence on 8/27/2011 edited by dspence on 8/27/2011
