    Help, my proofreader says I need a grade 1 indicator in a(n) — meaning a or an. I say that neither the a nor the n are standing alone: (UEB 2.6 and 2.62). So the letter n cannot mean the word not, and a always means a. So, the insertion of a G1 indicator either before the a or before the n seems unnecessary.

    So, is a(n) correctly brailled as:

    A”<N”>

    Thanks, Katrina

    Sorry, theĀ ” symbols in the simbraille should have been dot 5’s. K

    Hi Katrina,

    I understand the snafu with quotation marks and dot 5. šŸ™‚

    Your conclusion and reasoningĀ are solid. There is no need for grade 1 indicators in this symbols-sequence.

    Braille on,

    Julie
