    Hello Kathleen: Please remind me, when using contracted braille, are Grade 1 indicators necessary before key names in music (e.g., g# minor, F Major, etc.)? And is a Grade 1 passage indicator needed before a list of Major/Relative minor keys (see examples below).

    Good afternoon, Robert,

    The way you have used the grade 1 indicators in your simbraille is correct. We need the indicator if the letter is standing alone, but not if it is followed by the flat or sharp sign.

    You may choose to use a grade 1 passage indicator with lists of key names, according to the UEB rules pertaining to passages. (In the examples you attached, I did not notice any place where the passage indicator would be necessary, however.)

    Hope that helps!
