Latin Script (English-like) Uncontracted Flag of the United Nations

This table may be thought of as a "development laboratory" for users working with Duxbury to develop a new translation table.

These tables support print-to-braille translation of any language written in a Latin script (a.k.a., the Roman Alphabet). They begin by producing uncontracted braille, with punctuation and numbering that conform to Unified English Braille (UEB). Development proceeds from there in the direction required.

There is one DBT template for Latin Script development: Latin Script - Basic.

Uncontracted Braille

Uncontracted braille means that words in the text are rendered into 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.
