In this example, symbols that could be ambiguous
are combined with text that makes them more explicit.

Note

If it is not practical to associate a text with specific symbols whose meaning may not be clear (lack of space in the mock-up, for example), some solutions may be found later on in the development phase (by adding tooltips, for example).

In this example, symbols that could be ambiguous
are combined with text displayed in tooltips.

Nevertheless, these are compromise solutions that are less effective than optimising the symbol directly with associated text.
