Catalan Braille is the braille alphabet of the Catalan language, both in Spanish Catalonia and in Andora. It is very close to French Braille: It uses the 26 letters of the basic braille alphabet, plus several additional letters for ç and what are, in print, vowel letters with diacritics; these differ from their French values only in the need to accommodate the Catalan acute accent: ú, ó, í for what are in French Braille ù, œ, ì :
Print digraphs are written as digraphs in braille as well.
The middot is used to distinguish double-el 〈l·l〉, ⠇⠐⠇, from the digraph 〈ll〉, ⠇⠇.
|“ ...... ”||( ...... )|
The capital sign needs to be repeated for each letter of an initialism, so ACIC is ⠨⠁⠨⠉⠨⠊⠨⠉.
