Irish Gaelic Flag of the the Republic of Ireland

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

In November 2005, the original (1998) Irish tables and templates were updated by a joint effort of Duxbury Systems, in co-operation with Techno-Vision Systems Ltd., UK, and the National Braille Production Centre in Dublin. In January 2015, Duxbury Systems revised the Irish Gaelic tables to support the 2014 Updated Irish Braille code (UIB) based upon information supplied by, and with the assistance of, the Irish National Braille and Alternative Format Association (INBAF).

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.

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.
