Final Release of Braille Formats, 2016, from BANA

BANA headline

The 2016 revision of Braille Formats Principles of Print-to-Braille Transcription is now available online in multiple formats from the Braille Authority of North America (BANA).  This document aligns BANA’s braille formatting guidelines with Unified English Braille (UEB). Earlier this year, BANA posted a pre-publication version and offered an open comment period for users to provide input. BANA has incorporated this feedback and now provides this final publication on the BANA website.  They have also posted a change log that lists critical changes made to the Pre-Publication version. Links are provided below.

Braille Formats: Principles of Print-to-Braille Transcription, 2016 is available in three accessible electronic versions: BRF, enhanced PDF, and online HTML. Hard copy print and braille will be available at a later date from the American Printing House for the Blind (APH).
