  1. To whom it may concern:

    I’m a volunteer braille transcriber in California, U.S.A.
    I am in the process of trying to transcribe some Tongan print materials and have some questions regarding what dots are used to show accent marks before and after certain letters. Also, what braille dots are used in the UEB system to indicate letters which have a horizontal line above? Since I was unaware of the UEB system, until now, I decided to use dot 5 to represent the accent in front, and dot 2 for the accent mark behind. For the horizontal line, I have been using dots 5 and 6. However, I want what I do to be consistent with what is accepted elsewhere in the Pacific region. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Please respond ASAP. Respectfully, Jim Brown

  2. Hello Jim, I’ve shared your question with the paper’s authors, and with the chairs of both the New Zealand and Australian braille authorities. Hopefully one of them will reply to you by email.

    • Moira,

      So far, no response from the “authors.” Still waiting to hear from someone.
