I should have also said that Lindy is on vacation this month so I am answering these for her 🙂
Chair, NBA Nemeth Committee
The [NC 4.8.9 and 26.4.5] are reference to the Nemeth Code Book (which has not yet been published and is not available to the "public" yet).
Yes, the preferred method (after much discussion) for author's comments is that they are blocked four cells to the right of the runover position of the material to which they apply.
I would just ignore the boxes. The text explains what the reader is looking at. However, if you decide to retain the boxes, you should use the rules for shapes with interior modifications (which is what you did).
There is no rule in UEB or BF that requires abbreviations to stay in the same line as the material to which they apply. That's a Nemeth thing. 😁
In my opinion, the guidelines are clear that only the title page and supplemental title page are single spaced. The special symbols page and transcribers notes page are double spaced.
I apologize for not replying sooner - our system glitched and this just popped up!
My understanding was that only the title page(s) were single spaced. But Bonnie Read wrote the rules 🙂 This confuses me as well. Just reading the guidelines, I would say only the title pages...and the guidelines are what we should follow.
Wow - those are really messed up! I would be interested to know how you handled this! I would say that a TN would be required that the numbered lines cannot always be determined and you did the best you could to reproduce them as required.
PS - sorry for not responding quicker, our system glitched and I just saw all these old posts pop up!
Sorry for the delay in responding. According to BF 6.2.2c: When an illustration has a source citation, place it immediately following the caption using 7-5 margins.

I apologize for not answering this earlier - we had a system glitch.
Just number the sentences; put the number before the sentence as in print.
I sincerely apologize for not answering this - we were having issues with the expert post and I did not see it.
The dot locator is required in Example 13-5 so that the x (which is a stress mark) is not read as a contraction.
Samples 13-9 and 13-12 don't have anything that could be misread. A dot locator is not required just because a passage is done in uncontracted braille.
Examples 20-23 and 20-24 are incorrect and are added to the proposed errata we are compiling.
I apologize for the delay in responding...for some reason this did not come up as a new post.
Each subentry should begin on a new braille line (nested list).
I'm really sorry that I never responded to this! I did not see it and did not get notified of a post. I'm sure you've moved on past this but I'll still say that I think I would do it as a list and repeat headings as necessary.
Centered table heading
Vector Orientation at the margin
Vectors are Parallel in cell 3
Calculational Strategy... in cell 1
Add or subtract... in cell 3
Vector Orientation (repeated) in cell 1
Vectors are perpendicular in cell 3 with the diagram following
Calculational Strategy ... repeated in cell 1
Use ... in cell 3
Use (new paragraph) ... in cell 3
You could combine the headings "Adding two vectors" and "Limited usefulness" into one heading.
You would for sure need a TN to explain that you are using a list format for the table and that headings are repeated as necessary.
This is, for sure, super complicated!
Braille Formats doesn't address print/braille books at all.
I'm sorry for the delay in answering - I've been out of town and this got "lost" in my email!
If you are talking about print/braille type books (where the print and braille occupy the same page in most cases) then no, you would not add page numbers to any inserted pages.
Yes. It doesn't matter if there is one volume or 30...The End goes at the end of the book (enclosed in TN indicators).
