[bksvol-discuss] Re: More crotchets about Braille

If you do not have something like "Grade 2 translation" set on your
braille display, then I would say the offending characters are coming from
Bookshare's translator.
On my Alva, I can set the grade 2 translation on or off either through
Jaws or, I think through the Alva.  I'm not sure, since I never turn it
on.  But that's what I'd check.  Make sure translation is off, then read
the offending passage.
