    Example:

    I stand.

    How would you assign the typeform indictor for I in the example above, would you use an Italic Symbol or Italic Word Indicator?

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    Use the italic symbol indicator. UEB 9.2.1 shows an example of an italicized “i” as a letter, and 9.2.2 shows an example of an underlined “I” as a word. Both use symbol indicators. Context is not a factor, making it easier to use translation software, the reason for treating “I” this way.

    Braille on,

    Julie
