German Vollschrift is a system of lightly contracted braille that is almost uncontracted. It is rarely used.
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.
Partially Contracted Braille
Most often, German braille is contracted. This template produces braille with only sparing use of contractions.
Producing this language in uncontracted braille is also quite easy in DBT. Before translation into braille, place the cursor at the top of the document and use the Grade 1 command (Alt+1). When the document is translated, the braille will be uncontracted.
