Textbook Format

The Braille Authority of North America (BANA) writes and promulgates rules concerning the production of various types of braille documents. Standard textbooks, exclusive of those of a technical nature (math, sciences, computer programming) are governed by their 1997 publication: “Braille Format: Principals of Print to Braille Transcription.” These rules are consistently adopted by state and local textbook purchasing agencies. These rules are not a part of any Transcriber Certification through the Library of Congress. However, the National Braille Association (NBA) has formulated such a training course.
