Special characters: There are no capital letters in Braille. Instead, there is a symbol for "capital letter follows," which I have placed in the "at" (@) symbol. The "number follows" symbol is usually placed in the space for the "number" symbol (#), so I've followed that convention. In addition, I have copied the symbol for each letter into both the upper and lower case spaces, to make it easier to type something up (or select an existing text file) and switch the font to Braille (Basic) Alternate.

Mew Wins' Morse Code Alphabet (International) inspired me to make a Braille FontStruction. I have only drawn the basic, or Grade 1, version of the Braille alphabet here. (There is a contracted version of Braille, known as Grade 2, and another version which uses an 8 dot grid. In addition, there are special Braille characters for accented letters, but they are not all standardized, so for now I have stayed away from them.)

Special characters: There are no capital letters in Braille. Instead, there is a symbol for "capital letter follows," which I have placed in the "at" (@) symbol. The "number follows" symbol is usually placed in the space for the "number" symbol (#), so I've followed that convention.
