    Hi Susan,

    So sorry for the delay! I was "waiting" for you to post the print, thinking I would be automatically notified. Not so, and I should have manually checked.

    This involves formatting, which means Braille Formats trumps UEB. Follow the BF guidelines and samples, brailling the poem twice with the stress and unstressed marks above the second transcription, with a transcriber's note explaining.

    Braille on,

    Julie

    Hi Susan,

    Did you mean to send an attachment as well? I need to see the print.

    Braille on,

    Hi Lynnette,

    You may have to use braille grouping indicators when there is more than one digit that is cancelled.

    Hi Lynnette,

    Use the "line through previous item" symbol for the cancellation lines. Attached is an example that I hope is helpful.

    Braille on,

    Hi,

    First, are you transcribing this in UEB or Nemeth? Can you provide the print?

    Regards,

    Julie

    Hi Deborah,

    Use the italic symbol indicator for P. because it is an initial. Use the italic word indicator for "aurelia" and "caudatum" because those are words.

    Dan is correct; I couldn't have said it better.

    Hi Rebekah,

    The UEB code takes preference for the treatment of "I" in these cases--follow the examples in 9.2.1 and 9.2.2.

    Hi Lynnette,

    You'll be happy to hear that Guidelines for Technical Material does provide for this situation. See GTM 4.4.2, second bullet point, which says the hyphen may be substituted for the two-cell negative sign if space is needed on an axis. A transcriber's note explains this substitution.

    Also, the provisions of Guidelines and Standards for Tactile Graphics still hold. The numeric indicator is omitted from number lines. Divide the number line as needed according to GSTG.

    So, you'll have upper-cell numbers; dots 2, 456 for scale marks; arrows and line mode according to UEB; hyphens for the negative signs; with no numeric indicator according to GSTG.

    That should help!

    Braille on,

    Julie

    Hi Susie,

    Guidelines and Standards for Tactile Graphics 11.2.3 states that graphics for grades K-3 should be drawn. Draw the bar model and the bracket underneath. Use underscores for the blanks provided for writing answers in the left part of the box model and in the center underneath. The solid square should be done as a tactile square rather than a braille-dot shape symbol at this age as well. Do not draw a rectangle for the large blank workspace.

    Braille on,

    Julie

    Hi Susie,

    The UEB Guidelines for Technical Material give quite a bit of leeway on this issue. See GTM 1.1.2. However, most mathematical material is transcribed with unspaced signs of operation and spaced signs of comparison, even at third grade. We strongly recommend this, spacing around signs of operation only when specifically asked to do so.

    All the best on your venture,
    Julie

    Hi,

    Thank you for your patience. In this instance, we recommend the "directly over" approach to the question mark. We don't believe a grade 1 indicator is needed for the question mark, as it is at the end of the sequence and would not be confused with an opening quotation mark.

    Please note, also, that the check mark at the bottom of the page is brailled as dots 4, 146, officially adopted a few weeks ago. This replaces the proposed symbol of dots 5, 146.

    I've attached the braille symbols.

    Braille on,

    Julie

    Hi,

    My apologies for the delay. I'm researching this. We've almost reached a consensus and am waiting for confirmation.

    Hi,

    Include the colon in the bold. It's messy not to, clutter that isn't needed. See UEB 9.7.2 and 9.7.3 about generally including (non-paired) closing and incidental punctuation within the typeform indicators.

    Braille on,

    Julie
