Interesting, what your friend told you. I used to use brackets all the time to describe illustrations. I didn't know they didn't show up in Braille. Recently, though, I think because someone who listens said it was annoying, I haven't been adding them. I just write Illustration: and then the description. I do put it in a smaller font, though, or italics, which is probably unecessary because people who use Braille or who listen to the books probably don't know the difference, but maybe for other kinds of members its useful.
