Uncontracted Braille

IPA braille is uncontracted, which means that words in the text are produced 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 accent marks also adds braille characters to the count. However, the braille uses no abbreviations.
