    I think that makes sense (from a braille formatting perspective). The math, for me, not so much. 😉 That is the end of Example E. I attached more of the page to show what's next.

    Thank you again!

    Well, I'm back. 🙂 I'm attaching another example. Example D is the same as the previous sample I sent, so it will be the same formatting. However, Example E is just the opposite. At first glance, it looks like special margins are required, but the last line prohibits that. In that case, I will use 3-5 margins for the displayed math here too. Now I'm concerned about consistency so am wondering if I can and should include the general omission symbol to the left of the equal signs for the 4 middle lines of math. It feels strange to do that, but these are all examples of the same type of calculations.

    I included the paragraph that explains what is being demonstrated. I think they don't repeat the missing side because they are mimicking what one would do if they were calculating this on paper.

    Hi Lindy,

    I have the hard copy print, so there's nothing missing. You're right, they should have included the cancellation marks in print.

    I like your solution! That works for me.

    Thanks!

    I added the simbraille in the attachment.

    Lindy,

    I don't think this is a linked expression requiring special margins so shouldn't all the runovers begin in cell 9?

    It feels very uncomfortable to separate the number attached to the front of "sin" but then it also feels wrong to divide the grouped expression. My "logic" was that the reader would expect the continuation of the grouped expression on the next line. I also considered dividing before the opening parenthesis within the grouping in brackets. No particularly good choices here. 🙁

    Also, I had another question on that attachment about what to include within Nemeth indicators, if you wouldn't mind taking a look at that please.

    Thank you!

    Thank you for your help. You've given me lots to think about.

    Okay, that makes sense. I'll try to work with that.

    Since the values are not exactly simple, would it make sense to also list all of them in a TN for the student so that they have the same information that print readers have?

    "Our experts note that even though GSTG 6.1.5.10 allows for a rotation of the graph, the problem being asked of the student is to graph an f(x) vs x relationship. This could be confusing if the graph were actually rotated."

    So, now what? Could I/should I key the x-axis values? (I also tried spreading it out over facing pages with the x-axis values staggered, but it doesn't fit. )

    Here's the print of the graph I mentioned.

    Thank you for your help. I'm attaching my attempt.

    • I omitted the 1/2 labels on the f(x) axis because I can't fit the negative one and I think it's easy enough for the reader to determine what they mean. Since I could fit the positive 1/2, should I?
    • The distance between the horizontal and the vertical tick marks in print are the same. In order to fit the labels, I've had to spread the (now) horizontal line so that the tick marks are farther apart. I can't maintain the same proportions as print. Should I mention this in the TN when I explain that I rotated the axes?

    Later in the book this same issue comes up but as a graph with grid lines. Is it acceptable to also rotate a graph in this same way?

    What a thorough answer! I appreciate all the effort that went into this. I think I'm all set now.

    Thanks so much!

    So, none of the above. 🙂

    Thanks Lindy. Sometimes it helps to just have things spelled out plain and simple. 🙂
