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 (contractions) in the text. If you have questions about producing correct braille, please contact a member of your local braille authority.
Sometimes, you may want to produce uncontracted braille. This is easy to do with DBT. Be fore translation into braille, go to the top of the document in DBT, and issue the command Alt+1. When you translate into braille, the braille will be uncontracted.
