Hi Susan,

I don't know why my request to see the print posted twice....

UEB 4.2.5 refers to not just any grouping indicators when a modifier applies to more than one letter, but specifically to braille grouping indicators. Indicators of any kind do not exist in print. Braille grouping indicators are not interchangeable with existing print parentheses, brackets, or braces. The parentheses on the outside do not tell the reader that the modifiers apply to more than one letter. You need to show both in your transcription, as shown below. (The quotation marks should be dot 5s.) This same message is repeated in the attachment with the correct simbraille dots.


Braille on,
