The Bengali (Bangla) language has multiple DBT Templates.
Here is the list:
Bangladesh has published a guide book on braille. The first template matches these translation rules. The next two give the preferred translation used in India. The difference between these two tables is just the braille math code. Bengali (Indian) - Basic with Nemeth uses Nemeth Code for technical notation while Bengali (Indian) - Basic uses UEB for technical notation.
In Bangladesh, non-Unicode fonts are common. DBT has been modified to import text what has been encoded in the MJ Suttony font.
This language is usually produced in uncontracted braille. This 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 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 your local braille authority.
This language is written in a script other than the Roman alphabet. This may result in problems when importing files to DBT. Your best option is to import files from Microsoft Word or Open Office that are written in a Unicode font. You can contact support at Duxbury Systems if you have a file which does not import properly into DBT. Please send the file which does not import (the original inkprint file), not a screen shot of DBT.
Duxbury Systems strives to work with users to make sure that our software works with as many file formats as possible. Please contact us if you have any concerns.
