So you are not sure whether or not a blank line is used when applying a top and bottom exterior borders for a set of nested boxes? Whew, that is a mouth full! Should dots 123456 even be used? Answer, yes, in deed! Remember, if two separate boxes follow each other, as opposed to appearing as a smaller box in a bigger box, a blank line between boxes helps the braille reader know the difference.

Due to the holiday next week, there will not be a Weekly Dose of Braille.

For more information and to see past Weekly Dose of Braille topics check out our Weekly Dose of Braille Page.
The Weekly Dose of Braille is created by our Braille Transcriber, Denise Bean, with the help of our Instructional Materials team. It gives you a taste of braille examples that may be used in worksheets or textbook formatting. This insightful Weekly Dose of Braille brings your attention to the common use of Unified English Braille and how to implement these rules and formats used by braille transcribers and proofreaders. It is a miscellaneous mixture of tricky, sometimes challenging circumstances, that a braille transcriber may come across or question, but are neatly put into a Weekly Dose of Braille for your easy access. Provided each week is a downloadable PDF file on each topic, a brf file can also be made available for your convenience.
