16.5a Non-Latin letter indicator.

When letters from non-Latin languages such as Greek, Russian, Hebrew, or Arabic appear in English text, the braille equivalents of these letters are used and they are preceded by dot 2, the non-Latin letter indicator. The braille equivalents of Greek letters are listed in Appendix B of English Braille American Edition 1994. Please note that all Greek letters do NOT correspond to the anticipated print letters in braille. Other non-Latin languages are listed in World Braille Usage (available through the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped, see pg. xii).

When a non-Latin letter indicator and braille equivalents for non-Latin letters are used, they must be listed on a special symbols page (to be studied later).
