What I hate is when the Braille translator changes what should be apostrophes to smart quotes. That really irks me, and I see it a lot. And beggin' your pardon, Scott, but the convertor does not take care of smart quotes.


Another thing that needs to be fixed is the slipsis, followed by a closing quote, as in an interrupted dialogue. Ever since the new site went up, those are not translated correctly in the BRF files. I reported it until I got weary.

Hi Ann,

What need to be changed are smart quotes, not the apostrophes which are used
in British publishing.  Apostrophes used where we in America would use
quotes should be left alone.  Smart quotes which come from some OCR programs
need to be changed to standard quotes.

Hope that helps.

Mayrie

Hi all,

Can we have some clarification on the issue of quotes?  I understood that
they needed to be changed to regular quotes because they didn't come out
right in Braille.
