The Code Maintenance Committee (CMC) of the International Council on English Braille (ICEB) would like your input on possible changes to the braille representation of single quotation marks and the apostrophe to facilitate translation and reading on electronic braille devices. This document UEB_Apostrophes_Options (2) gives an explanation of the problem and the options under consideration. (Thanks to James Bowden, UK, and Leona Holloway, Australia, for their work on this.)

After reading the information, please complete the survey at
to indicate your preference. The CMC will use the results of the survey to guide their decision on this issue.

The survey will be available until the end of June. If necessary, this time frame may be extended.
