Hello Peter:

The topic Philippe spoke about is our request #03.11 (your ref. #1418):

The French rule says:

a) up to 3 capitalized words: each word is preceeded by the capital sign 
(dots 4-6);

b) 4 and more capitalized words: the first word is preceeded by dots 2-5 and 
4-6, the last word by 4-6. For example:

PARIS EST LA PLUS BELLE VILLE DU MONDE
(sorry, folks! don't be envious...)

must be translated:

3.paris est la plus belle ville du .monde

This rule is a bit similar to the one for bold, italics or underlining. DBT 
ignores the rule for capitalized words.

All the best.

Christian

Hello Phillipe,

It will help me to understand if you can supply an example.

What did you enter into DBT?

What braille resulted?  (You can just copy the braille from DBT into your
e-mail?)

What braille should have resulted?

We'll want to fix the problem.  But we need to understand specifically what
to do first.

Best Regards,

Peter

Hello,

Bêta 2 installed.
For specific French braille 2006 should I tell to Christian Coudert.
I'm surprise that words all caps is not in fonction! It's verry dammaged!
I talk with braille partners in Belgium. I say them: - Working with DBT is
fine, buy it!
- Why, and what about all caps?

Thanks to make working this!

Philippe
