Use a dot locator for "use" unspaced before a braille symbol to assure that it will be physically recognizable. A braille symbol which has only lower dots and which is isolated from other text may otherwise be misread. A braille symbol preceded by a dot locator for "use" retains its normal effect on text.




Follow print for the use of the prime sign.

Note: The foot may be shown in print by an apostrophe and the inch by a nondirectional double quote. This can be followed in braille.


Follow print for the use of the female (Venus) and male (Mars) signs.


Follow print spacing for use of the plus, equals, multiplication, division, minus, ratio, proportion, less-than and greater-than signs when used in non-technical material.


Follow print for the transcription of the natural, flat and sharp signs within UEB text.


When the natural, flat and sharp signs are found within musical notation, use the provisions of the New International Manual of Braille Music Notation for their transcription.


Follow print for use of the number sign.


Follow print for the use of arrows. In non-technical material, list the complete arrow symbol (without any grade 1 indicator) and its meaning on the symbols page or in a transcriber's note.

Note: The grade 1 indicator may be required before the arrow symbol to avoid it being misread.

Refer to: Section 11.6, Technical Material, and Guidelines for Technical Material, Part 13, for further information on arrows.


Follow print for use of the paragraph and section signs.


Follow print for use of the percent sign.
