Developed under the sponsorship of the Braille Authority of North America. Music Braille Code is intended to extend consistent guidance regarding music format. Where appropriate, rules and procedures have been adjusted to comply with the adoption of UEB: The Rules of Unified English Braille and of Braille Formats: Principles of Print-to-Braille Transcription.
A section about transcribing music for harps, which was not included in the 1997 BANA code, has been added. This edition also incorporates some signs that are not defined in either a particular piece of music or in the New International Manual of Braille Music Notation.
