Layout: Character Codes: Letter Sign

Keystroke: L from Character Codes menu

This is a special braille character normally used in Grade 2 to indicate that what follows is an isolated letter, as opposed to a word.

For example, in English Braille, the letter k means "knowledge". If the letter k was proceeded by dots 5,6 the reader would know that this means simply the letter k.

To use this command, place your cursor immediately in front of the letter for which you wish a letter sign to precede, and select Letter Sign from the Character Codes Menu. An &+ will appear in the print version as show below. In braille the appropriate letter sign will be shown.

"He did not have any knowledge of &+k, which in computer terms means kilobytes."
