When writing about numbers that appear in a Splunk UI, duplicate them exactly as the UI displays. Otherwise, follow these guidelines.

Use numerals when referring to numbers in a range. Use a suitable word, such as "to", "from", or "through", instead of a hyphen between numbers in a range. Indicating a range with a suitable word removes any ambiguity that using a hyphen can create for readers who use screen readers.

It's okay to use a hyphen between numbers where space is a limiting factor, such as in a table or in tight UI spaces.
