    Hi Wendy,

    I've been using your article (Computer Material in UEB) from the Fall 2016 NBA letter for web addresses and it's been a life-saver. I noticed recently that with my Braille 2000 program, a grade 1 mode sign (56) is automatically showing up before the first colon  (http:  c: etc.) I can easily delete it but needed to be sure I wasn't missing something new that I need to have in the address. I believe I understand all the examples you used and your instruction about Grade 1 including the fact that it's also set by the number sign. I just need to be sure I'm OK deleting the sign after http

    Thanks, Susan

    Hi Susan,

    So sorry for the delay. This forum is new and it slipped my attention. I'm moderating for now.

    You are correct; that seems to be a glitch in the Braille2000 programming. Dots 25 represent the contraction "cc" ONLY when it is between two letters so there is no need for the grade 1 symbol indicator in the instance of "https://" because the forward slash isn't a letter. The same for "c:\". If, however, you have "c:index" (I'm making something up; I've no idea if that would ever happen in the computer world.), then you would need the grade 1 symbol indicator because dots 25 are between two letters.

    Braille on,
