    Hi Susan,

    Checkout the video in our Webinars Archive called "Wide Tables" presented by Cindi Laurent on August 2, 2019. You'll find it in the Braille Formats/Textbooks webinars. That webinar should provide all the answers you're looking for on this particular question.

    Hi Christina!

    You can search the forums, but we don't have an easy way of implementing a search by a topic so you won't be able to narrow it down. If you go to the main page for the list of groups, in the upper right hand corner of the page you should have a "search" field. That will look at all the forum groups and provide results from all of Ask An Expert.

    Moderators: I've followed up with this and she's going to try reposting in a different thread with different file attachments.

    In the braille for the web address the number sign required for the number 2 initiates grade one mode, so no contractions follow.

    If you are using WORD and need to insert the long dash here is what you need to do:

    enter 2015 and then alt+x. This will insert a long dash in WORD and DBT will transfer it to the right symbol when imported.

    The checkmark in UEB is dots 5, 146 and can be found in section 8.3 of the Guidelines for Technical Material.

    There is no general reference indicator in UEB. The BANA Braille Formats Committee will be addressing this issue in the update.

    I open the attachment in word and increased the focus and it read ok.

    I'm sorry, Charles, the image you attached is illegible.

    Please try again.

    It seems to me that the teacher has placed you in a very difficult position. You want to do what is best for the student, and you are trying to follow the Guidelines (which outline the best practices according to other tactile graphics experts), but if you are working with the teacher and the material is being used by only that student, you will probably have to comply with the teacher.

    If the student gets used to seeing the images in conjunction with the actual shapes during the school year, they may be able to handle the test material, but this is a very difficult concept to grasp!! You could check with the teacher to see whether she will allow you to show a top (or bottom) view as well as a side view for each object. Again though, the student has to work with the actual shapes in order to learn how to put the images together mentally in order to determine the shape.

    I have transcribed several provincial tests (equivalent to State exams), and they have always stated that classroom manipulatives are allowed to be used.
    Sorry that I cannot be of more help. I have also checked with the chair of BANA's test committee to see if she can offer any further comments/suggestions.

    [quote=jbb]Am I correct to use the Nemeth boldface indicator even in non mathematical sections of the book?[/quote]

    I'd apply Rule V. section 34.b, along with relevant sections of Braille Formats.

    But that's just me.

    Larry, thank you!

    I already did the pedaling as you suggested - hurrah!

    I did also move the annotations to a separate section (pages) at the end of each piece.

    What I DIDN'T do (and perhaps SHOULD do?) is change them to numbered references instead of putting them in list-form by measure-number. This would require that I re-format the music to include a footnote indication within each of the 19 annotated measures of the piece. If that is more accurate, I will do so before sending the volumes off to the client.

    Thank you again for your help.

    Ooops. Let me know if you cannot open a Braille 2000 file. I will then put it in a word doc.
