Who can participate? This workshop will be of interest to transcribers and teachers of students with visual impairments, as well as advanced braille readers pursuing courses in math and science! Participants must have a good working knowledge of the rules of UEB but familiarity with Technical Material is not necessary.

Workshop Description: UEB Guidelines for Technical Material really can handle everything in Math, Science and Computer Notation. This discussion of additional examples will introduce some of the technical symbols and will clarify the use of grade 1 indicators and braille grouping indicators. Some examples will be taken from senior level curriculum.

The workshop will be moderated by Kim Kilpatrick, member of the BLC Board of Directors.
