OctBraille Fonts

Quality-assured Braille

There are continuingly higher demands for the quality of medical products and their packaging. With the EU Directive 2001/83 / EC, it became a requirement to state the name and strength of the product in Braille on the packaging. To comply with that, the TrueType OctoBraille font OctoBrailleMM and OctoBrailleVisualMM are excellent tools.

Platforms

The OctoBraille fountain complies with the Marburg Medium standard recommended by the European Commission for the production of Braille.

OctoBrailleMM and OctoBrailleVisualMM are based on ISO8859-1 character set also known as Latin 1 or Windows Codepage 1252. The fonts contain all 256 Braille characters in the 8-dot figure and thus also the 64 standard Braille characters in the 6-dot system.
The fonts were originally developed for the MS Windows platform but have also been tested on the Apple Macintosh OS X platform.
