I don't believe that this is the standard for Braille. The majority of Braille books I read have roman numerals for preliminary pages and Arabic numbers for the main pages of the book. I have seen a few with the P preceding the preliminary pages, though I definitely wouldn't call it the standard.

If that is the standard way of doing it in Braille then it might be acceptable in Braille, but I think it might be confusing if a synthetic voice was reading it or if it was being read visually. But then, I also think that having some pages in Roman numerals and others in Arabic numerals is confusing too and I thought that back when I was reading printed books without even the slightest idea that I would become blind.

Hi, I've seen Braille books which are paginated in the following way:
prefatory material pages are written as p1, p2, ..., while the text outside the prefatory material will be paginated 1, 2, etc. it's only the page sign
in front of the number which marks prefatory pages while the body of the
text after such does not have a P to mark numbers. Would that suit you. I learned about Roman numerals in school and they are clumsy, but I'm used to them. Perhaps what I've written above might be classified as an alternative.
What do you think of that? Regards, Kim.

Let me dispute the recommendation that the first page of the actual novel be
labeled page 1 and the preliminary pages be labeled with Roman numerals.
That might be the case usually, but it is not necessarily so. I would say that it should be done that way only if that is the way the book does it. Right now, for example, I am working on a book in which page one is actually the first of the preliminary pages and the main text does not start until about page 9. I would prefer it if all books were paginated that way, but
unfortunately it seems that only a minority are.

Hi Kane,

Welcome aboard.

My name is Gail I don't scan I only proof.

Interms of the page numbers:

1. The beginning of the actual novel can be listed as page 1 (one) or the
actual page of the book itself.
2. any other pages before it would be listed in Roman neumerals.
  i.e. Talbe of Contents xi
3. any blank pages with in the text should have page numbers and the words

blank page
on a separate line with a blank line in between.

i.e.
21

blank page

4. If a page has an illustration picture descriptions are welcome.

or
i.e.

27

illustration

Hope this helps.
