2.4a Single and double quotation marks.

Quotation marks should be brailled as they appear in print. However, if double and single quotation marks are reversed throughout an entire print work (that is, the single quotes are used as the outer quotation marks and the double quotes used as the inner quotation marks), in braille these marks may be reversed in order to save space. A note explaining this reversal must be placed on a transcriber's notes page (to be studied later) at the beginning of each braille volume.

Braille should follow print when a passage consists of two or more paragraphs in quotation marks, with the opening quotation mark placed at the beginning of each paragraph and the closing one appearing only at the end of the last paragraph.
