    Hello,

    I have come across a plural phrase: “you didn’t hear it from me”s.
    Would there be a letter indicator before the s? Duxbury is automatically inserting one, but I’m not sure it’s necessary.

    Thanks,
    Rebecca

    Hi Rebecca
    I believe I know how to answer this, but before I do, would it be possible to upload a pdf of the actual print page.
    It’s often very important to see the entire context in which something is being used before the proper determination about how to braille it can be made.
    Thanks

    Here you go, Saralyn. I attached the page with the phrase underlined. It’s just a page from a novel (not a trial manuscript), and it’s not a textbook or anything instructional.

    Thanks,
    Rebecca

    Thank you so much for the pdf.
    I don’t see any rules or guidelines that address this type of situation.
    I would suggest that the letter indicator NOT be used.
    It won’t be confused for anything else.
    It will just look as strange in braille as it does in print. (smile)
