Uncontracted Braille

EBU Pharmaceutical is usually produced in uncontracted braille.

This means that words in the text are rendered in braille on a one-for-one basis: one braille character for each inkprint letter. Some inkprint punctuation may require more than one braille character. Indicating upper case, emphasis, or numbers also adds braille characters to the character count. However, the braille contains no abbreviations or contractions

If you have questions about how EBU braille should be produced, please contact a member of that authority.
