The two little parallel slanting lines indicate an n sound modified by a pesh or kasra or fatah as in the next figure .

Remember the normal vowel marks

In handwriting the two dots over the Q can be written as a dash . The three dots of SH as an inverted v or straight line and the K eg as in KL can be modified as follows

a T vowel mark over the final H can be silent as below or can be pronounced as TA depending on circumstances.
