When it comes to the use of Indicators there are several uses for capitalization, italics, bold, script, but what about numbers? To save space when you come across a table with only numbers there is a great solution, this solution is called the Numeric Passage Indicator and terminator.
In most cases when it comes to numbers, Nemeth is what our standards are set by, but when material is requested for Unified English Braille in a literary sense this option is what I would recommend for saving space.

The Weekly Dose of Braille is created by our Braille Transcriber, Denise Bean, with the help of our Instructional Materials team. It gives you a taste of braille examples that may be used in worksheets or textbook formatting. This insightful Weekly Dose of Braille brings your attention to the common use of Unified English Braille and how to implement these rules and formats used by braille transcribers and proofreaders. It is a miscellaneous mixture of tricky, sometimes challenging circumstances, that a braille transcriber may come across or question, but are neatly put into a Weekly Dose of Braille for your easy access. Provided each week is a downloadable PDF file on each topic, a brf file can also be made available for your convenience.
