Irish Flag of the the Republic of Ireland

This DBT template is designed to produce material written in the Irish language.

In November 2005, the Irish tables and templates were updated by a joint effort of Duxbury Systems, Inc., in co-operation with Techno-Vision Systems Ltd., UK, and the National Braille Production Centre in Dublin. The National Braille Production Centre is the braille standard-setting organization in Ireland, which provided expert advice on Irish Braille.

Contracted Braille

This language is usually produced in contracted braille. This means that words are not produced in braille on a one-for-one basis. There are abbreviations or contractions in the text. If you have questions about how braille is produced, please contact a member of the relevant braille authority.

Sometimes, you may want to produce uncontracted braille. This is easy to do with DBT. Before translation into braille, go to the top of the document in DBT, and press Alt-1. When you translate into braille, the braille will be uncontracted
