Punctuation

Serbian and Croatian Braille differ in quotation marks, brackets, and in the period/full stop vs. apostrophe.[1] There is less punctuation reported for Slovene and Macedonian Braille, but what there is matches Serbian conventions.

Blank cells in the tables are unattested.

Single punctuation:

Croatian
Serbian

num.)
(Caps) (CAPS) (l.c.) (emph.) (super-

The superscript is reported for Croatian Braille; in Serbian Braille, is used for the virgule /. In Slovene Braille, the emphasis (bold/italic) marker is reported to be an abbreviation sign.

  1. 1 2 3 4 5 The Croatian apostrophe is unusual by international standards, and it is possible the period and apostrophe were swapped in a copy error by Unesco (2013) and copied from them to other sources. Croatian Wikipedia gives for the period and for parentheses, both agreeing with Serbian Braille.
