This is a basic DBT template. Click here for more information about Basic Templates.
By default, this template does not include capital letter marks in the braille. Note that this does not correspond with the most recent rules of Norwegian Braille.
The default math braille code for this template is German Math.
To use this translator for technical material, the math material needs to be enclosed in the DBT math style. This markup is added automatically when importing LaTeX files and some other formats.
You can make this template your default selection.
This language is usually produced in uncontracted braille, which 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 producing correct braille, please contact a member of the appropriate braille authority.
