I would like to continue this discussion by asking the last question again: what does the average Hispanic reader expect? We are transcribing a number of routine, short everyday documents (e.g., one page notices) that the customer would not want to have title pages, special symbols pages, etc. Is it OK to use grade 1 braille and the accent symbol (dot 4) before accented letters in documents like this? If we have to use all the accented letters, is it OK to explain them in a transcriber's note as opposed to a separate symbols page?
