Contracted Braille

Zulu 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

Default Braille Mathematics Code

The default math braille code for this Template is UEB (Unified English Braille)

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.
