Dymo Braille labeler question


Ann Parsons
 

Hi all,

On my labeler, the character next to the a is the 'for' sign which is for space and cutting the tape. to the left of that, or clockwise around the dial is the number sign: dots 3-4-5-6. Dots 3-4-5, is the AR sign or sometimes right paren or other things depending on what code of braille you're using.

BTW, I have changed the spelling of labeler because if you're going through your messages quickly, labler makes no sense at all. Label isn't spelled like table. Sounds like it ought to be but it ain't.

I've never seen it as a for sign: on the ones I have, it looks like a rectangle standing up, sort-of like a picture frame, because there is nothing in the middle; but it is in the same place and has the same purpose. Pam.

Hi all,

That's the 'for' sign, all six dots.

None of mine have any dots in that place. Like I said, it is a metal oblong frame, no dots. Pam.
