    Two questions:

    #1 Braille Formats §13.9.3 Example 13-5 a dot locator for use with a grade one passage indicator is shown before the second transcribing of a poem with diagrammed scansion. This makes sense to me. However, samples 13-9 and 13-12 do not have a grade one passage indicator. Why is that? Is the TN explaining that the second instance is uncontracted enough?

    #2 Sample 21-3 Glossary with diacritics uses grade one indicators where appropriate. Examples 20-23 and 20-24 with similar structure don’t show grade one indicators where I would think they should be (on ac standing alone) Is this an error?


    I sincerely apologize for not answering this - we were having issues with the expert post and I did not see it.

    The dot locator is required in Example 13-5 so that the x (which is a stress mark) is not read as a contraction.

    Samples 13-9 and 13-12 don't have anything that could be misread. A dot locator is not required just because a passage is done in uncontracted braille.

    Examples 20-23 and 20-24 are incorrect and are added to the proposed errata we are compiling.
