  • Georgian Braille

Georgian Braille is a braille alphabet used for writing the Georgian language. The assignments of the Georgian alphabet to braille patterns is largely consistent with unified international braille.[1]

The basic braille range mostly conforms with international norms, with the exception of sounds which do not occur in Georgian, such as ? *f (reassigned in Georgian to ? t'), and ? *q, which is used for ? ch' rather than ? q. The assignment of ? to ? ch' is reminiscent of Russian Braille, as is one or two other letters (? for ? sh is widespread in Eastern Europe), but most of the extended-letter assignments are unique to Georgian.
