    Hello Kathleen:

    I am transcribing this exam in uncontracted braille. In such a case, I would not need to use grade 1 indicators, correct? Would I have to use the lowercase indicator (same symbol) at all? Also, would I have to use the literary sharp sign, for instance, to transcribe g# minor? I don't know how extensively to use code switching.

    And finally, is there a better way to  transcribe Question 13 than this (see attached)?


    I really appreciate all your help.

    You wouldn't need to use Grade 1 indicators in literary context if you are in uncontracted braille - unless you are giving the name of a minor chord in music notation.  For example: a minor 6 chord in first inversion would be:


    The lower case indicator is part of the music code symbol for the lower case roman numeral.

    Yes - use the UEB sharp, flat, natural signs in literary context. If you are in music context, use the music symbol.

    I think your transcription of question 13 looks fine. But I would use the special right hand sign that indicates intervals are to be read upward:


    And put a blank line between parallels.

    Hope that helps!
