Hi Greta,

I have an answer for you about the fully capitalized addresses at last! Here is the recommendation from a top UEB expert: Consider each line as a text element in this case. Precede each line with the cap passage indicator, putting it before the number at the beginning of the second line because it is continuing an ongoing passage.  (If the passage started on that line, the indicator would be placed before CHERRY.)  Place the cap terminator after IL, before the zip code, in the third line.

BTW, postal codes in Canada are mixes of numbers and letters so the last line might be CONCORD ON L4K 5N2 and the cap terminator would follow the 2 for better readability.

Braille on,
