I write it like this 1 1/2. Will the Braille Translator translate this?

What if the fraction was a cup and a half of another how would that be written 
again? Just my curiosity!

Hi Pam,
The braille translater, or is it translator, won't handle the fraction 
symbols.  They need to be written as 1/2, and like that.
Thanks for asking!

Hey all, 

I'm coming across a bunch of fractions for recipes in the book that I'm 
proofing.  For Braille readers, is the 1 / 2 format better than the symbol 1 
over 2 in one individual space (sorry I can't make this symbol in e-mail).  Any 

Thanks for your thoughts,
