“This new braille has so many extra dots!” This is something we hear a lot, and it’s often followed by the question, “What do they all mean?”
This Masterclass will help to solve the mystery. James Bowden, Braille Technical Officer at RNIB, Chairman of the Braille Coding Group of the UK Association for Accessible Formats, and the UK Representative to the Code Maintenance Committee of the International Council on English Braille, will describe the common indicators in UEB and give some real world examples of their use.
In particular, we will cover:
- Capital letters and block capitals
- Making sure a word or symbol is not misread as a contraction
- Italicised, bolded and underlined text
A handout will be made available on our website after the Masterclass. However, the pace is likely to be quite brisk, so we recommend being able to take notes during the session if at all possible.
