    What is the oval shape used on a sample ballot in literary braille?  Could it be the shape indicator and the letter o?  If there is not one, is a blank line used with a transcriber's note?

    The UEB Literary Committee agrees that you should use a transcriber-defined shape indicator followed unspaced by the letter “o” or, as suggested in UEB, use a word or initials, such as “os” meaning “oval shape” or something similar. (UEB §11.7.2)

    Also, if a filled oval appears in a sample ballot, a committee member mentioned that you’d then be able to use the filled shape indicator. (GTM §14.2)

    We hope this provides some direction.
