How to keep certain symbols changing with braille screen input

Forum
Braille on Apple Products

Hello all!
"I hope you are all doing well and staying safe and sane!
I have a couple questions about BSI. and certain symbols changing and how to keep a letter from being capitalized when it shouldn't ;. Specifically I'm talking about email addresses. Here's what happens.
I'm trying to type my email address in using BSI. until I feel more comfortable with it, and I have a pretty good idea on where the keys are before I start entering passwords. So, I'm starting with my email address. Also, because it takes a while to type using the keyboard. The 2 issues I'm running into are
1. The at sign changes to a percent sign when ever i put the email provider at the end of the email address. So, for example, if I wanted to write
jsmith96atgmail.com
this is how it comes out.
jsmithbleif,percentsignGmail.com
This happens in username fields and other fields like password recovery fields where you have to put in your email address.

2. The letter of the email provcider is getting capitalized. And if I delete it and try and put it in again, it does the same thing. So I just switch back to the regular keyboard to type the rest of it out.
My questions are
How do I stop this from happening?

2. Hsh ow do you stop the letter from the email provider, like Gmail.com
I hope You guys can understand what I am saying. As I

Lately I've been writing my email address until the @ sign then switching to regular keyboard and typing the rest.

Also, how can you type punctuation emojis? Every time I try typing a colon it comes out con or if I type a colon and parenthesises it comes out ccwere or gg.
Do I need to add another braille table? And if so, which one? I use contracted braille for my input and 6 dot for my outpkut. Any help is very much appreciated. Because these little things have been driving me nuts.
Thanks very much in advance.

Try using grade 1 braile and see if you still have those problems.

I have never used contracted braille on iOS because I see people having all these issues.

I would probably just stick to grade 1.

Sure, it takes a little longer to write, but you also won't have translation quircs.

The at symbol, with UEB is dot 4, followed by dot 1.

Thank you so much! :)
I'll be sure to give it a try it.
I wish that there was a way to put something in like the double c contraction and you could flick up and discover a list of other symbols that use that particular contraction. Like you can do on certain words in BSI. then life would be great.
