Great to hear that everyone is still out there. Happy New Year to you all. 


This year we are revisiting our diagram production methods at RNZFB and looking 
carefully at the BANA/CBA guidelines will be part of this process. So 
discussion on this list sounds like a great idea.

Greetings! Good to hear from you Sarah. Discussing the BANA/CBA guidelines and 
how they are being used is a great idea. So far, the .html version is available 
on the BANA website  www.brailleauthority.org/tg with a printable .pdf version 
coming within the next couple of months. American Printing House for the Blind 
is producing hard copy print, a braille version, and the supplement of 
examples. As soon as the additional resources are available I'll be sure to 
post to this list. 

Perhaps you can give us an update on ImageShare?

Hello Robert,  and Happy New Year to everyone.

Congratulations on your new post at NFB.

Since the BANA/CBA tactile graphics guidelines were published last year,
I wonder how you're all getting on with using them in practice? Perhaps
we could use this list to share experiences?

I'm planning to organise a UK review of the BANA/CBA Tactile Graphics
Guidelines this year to see if we can adopt them in the UK, and to
identify how much (if any) localisation work would need to happen for
them to work for us.

Look forward to hearing when the tactile graphics volumes are available.

Best wishes to all,

Hello colleagues:

    I thought I would write wishing everyone a Happy New year and see
if this list was still alive.
