>From NBA's website:

The number line of a box and whisker plot is the only part that can be
composed of braille dots -- use number line rules. The actual box and
whisker must be tactile -- drawn as it looks in print. Don't put any text
between the box and the number line, with the box being 1/4 inch above the
number line. Regardless of their placement in print, boxes must be moved
above the number line. *
