Oriya alphabet

Oriya Braille is one of the Bharati braille alphabets, and (apart from using Hindi æ for Oriya ) it conforms to the letter values of the other Bharati alphabets.[1]

Alphabet[edit]

The alphabet is as follows.[1] Vowel letters are used rather than diacritics, and they occur after consonants in their spoken order. For orthographic conventions, see Bharati Braille.
