I've discovered that British books use a single quote
where we use double, and vice versa. The single quote
and an apostrophe look alike--in fact, when I
validated a book like that, I used the same symbol.
Maybe Kurzweill is using the context to say "single
quote" and when it's used as an apostrophe it will say

I would assume that the symbol for both apostrophe and
single quote will be the same in braille, but I don't
know. However, you will be able to tell the difference
from the context.

I haven't read through all the posts yet, as I should
have. I apologize if I''m saying something that's
already been said.
