Online Student Materials

Does your student need access to online materials in braille? Many times, even though there is an online version available, there are also PDF files for the materials.

Please have the teacher ask the publisher to provide the PDF files when requesting the material for braille. It’s also good to check with the publisher to see if there is an ISBN connected to the material.

This is all very helpful information for our IMC team.

Weekly Dose of Braille

When it comes to the use of Indicators there are several uses for capitalization, italics, bold, script, but what about numbers? To save space when you come across a table with only numbers there is a great solution, this solution is called the Numeric Passage Indicator and terminator.

In most cases when it comes to numbers, Nemeth is what our standards are set by, but when material is requested for Unified English Braille in a literary sense this option is what I would recommend for saving space.

This week a great question was asked about how to format certain types of punctuation, or should I say brackets, when shown in print. Well, whenever research is brought into the mix, it will always be used as a Dose for the following week! — Denise Bean
