This table is a close relation to the *Biblical Original Language Studies* table. It is designed to produce material written in the transliterated Semitic languages for biblical scholars or students in seminaries.

The Biblical Languages template and the Semitic Languages template handle the following languages:

- English
- Hebrew
- Greek
- Syriac
- Coptic
- Ethiopic
- Various European languages with accent marks
- Arabic
- Russian

No special language switching is needed to go from script to script. This single table handles them all.

The centerpiece of this table is incorporation of the diacritical marks used to indicate the pronunciation of various Semitic languages. This braille code was developed by a committee consisting of:

- Eric Harvey (blind biblical scholar)
- David Holladay (Duxbury Systems)
- Sarah Blake LaRose (blind biblical scholar)
- Ray McAllister (blind biblical scholar)
- Caryn Navy (Duxbury Systems)
- Matthew Yeater (blind biblical scholar)

Accents (All these occur before the letter in Braille):

- Acute is dots 23 (2)
- Breve is dots 23456 (()
- Breve reversed is dots 12356 ())
- Caron is dots 46 (.)
- Circumflex is dots 56 (;)
- Dot above is dot 4 (@)
- Dot below is dot 5 (")
- Grave is dots 25 (3)
- Hook above is dots 1256 (\)
- Line below is dots 456 (_)
- Macron is dots 45 (^)

This table is subject to change. It is largely in the alphabetical order of the base letter.
