OK, great! Thank you for the quick response!
OK, got it. Thanks for the quick response, Cindi. I appreciate it!
Carol, thank you for taking the time to lay out all that information for me! I used the resources you mentioned, and feel more confident now with the transcription. In the WBU, I did see that the German section continues onto page 183, and that is where the capital indicator is hiding.
Thanks again -- I appreciate your response!
OK, I'll go with the icons. Thanks for the quick advice, Cindi!
Best wishes, Greta
OK, sounds good. Thank you for the answer, Cindi!
Thank you, Saralyn!
That's more than a detail. It's a game-changer and a very big deal. France has its own braille authority and its own rules. If you have determined that following the Interim Manual is not appropriate, I'm afraid you can't pick and choose. French braille now uses Antoine numbers AND uses composition signs differently along with different font attributes. And French is contracted. For all these reasons, that puts it beyond the scope of this forum and beyond the scope of NBA. We can only advise interpretation and application of BANA rules and BANA is the Braille Authority of North Amerioca only.
However, if you feel that using the Interim Manual would work even in this situation, let us know if we can be of any help.
I forgot to mention a detail. If the documents are going to be used in France, does that make a difference with the numbers? Or are materials for foreign countries beyond the scope of this forum? Thanks! Greta
