Last I knew, the only option was a Canadian course but maybe there are U.S. options now. I have a vague memory of hearing of such. Do you know of any? Regards, Julie September 29, 2022 at 6:46 pm #39357 kdejuteModerator Answer, part 1: A list of resources for studying UEB, with a focus on math & science UEB Math/Science (or "Technical Material in UEB") Resources 👩🏫 The APH webinar UEB Math Science: Frozen Juice Concentrate explains some principles that expand through all UEB Math/Science materials, and it is packed full of resources for reference and study. This webinar's handout is hosted on the Access Academy Handouts page. Below are links to a variety of free resources for learning to use UEB to transcribe technical materials. Guidelines for Technical Material (2008 version updated August, 2014), available in PDF and BRF from ICEB's UEB page UEB Mathematics Program from UEBOnline Braille Course 1.3 UEB Technical, from CNIB (available in PDF and BRF). This is described in detail as part of the APH webinar Navigation of Braille Certification. UEB Math Tutorial online, from APH The Hitchhiker's Guide to UEB Maths, from BANZAT Unified English Braille for Math (For Sighted Learners), posted by the Philippine National School for the Blind Provisional Guidance for Transcribing Mathematics in UEB, from BANA UEB Training Modules, from Colorado DOE The National Braille Association has webinars about UEB Math/Science both in their webinars archive and on their Web-Based Learning Page. The Primary Maths Cheat Sheet, from UEBOnline is one list of some UEB symbols used in technical materials. The UKAAF created the document "Generating mathematical symbols using Math AutoCorrect or Unicode," which provides detailed instruction on inserting symbols in a document, especially in MS Word. The document is available in multiple formats from UKAAF's website, in the section on Braille Standards. This reply was modified 12 months ago by kdejute.

October 3, 2022 at 1:49 pm #39360 Julie SumwaltParticipant Wow, such a thorough response! Thank you! So, could I take any of these routes and then apply for certification? How and where would I do that? Julie October 3, 2022 at 4:09 pm #39361 kdejuteModerator Julie, The most official "certification" that we know of is the letter of proficiency that comes from successfully completing the final test of CNIB course 1.3. More information about this is in the APH webinar "Navigation of Braille Certification". Another "certification" is the certificates that you can purchase after completing each of the three math programs offered by UEB Online. –Kyle October 5, 2022 at 2:53 pm #39362 Julie SumwaltParticipant Hmmm ... Okay, thanks! (We need more in the U.S.!) Julie Author Posts Viewing 6 posts - 1 through 6 (of 6 total) Everyone is free to read the forums, but only current NBA members can post.
