This is a basic DBT template. Click here for more information about Basic Templates.
This DBT Template is designed to produce material written in the Dhivehi language.
You can make this template your default selection.
Dhivehi 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 symbol. Some inkprint punctuation may require more than one braille character. Showing upper case, emphasis, or numbers will add braille characters to the character count. But there are no abbreviations or contractions. If you have questions about how braille is produced, please contact a member of the relevant braille authority.
Default Braille Mathematics Code
The default math braille code for this Template is Arabic.
To use this translator for technical material, the math material needs to be enclosed in the DBT style, math. This markup is added automatically when importing LaTeX files and some other formats.
Dhivehi is written in a script other than the Roman alphabet. This may result in problems when importing files into 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.
Please contact us if you have any concerns.
