Each country has its own braille code. There are many common elements in each country code, but certain important differences. Therefore, PharmaBraille braille fonts are supplied in country specific formats.
Our fonts conform to the Marburg Medium dimensions and spacing specifications and comply with European and American standards for Pharmaceutical Braille. PharmaBraille fonts are supplied in the OpenType PS font format—suitable for installation on both Mac and PC systems and are compatible with Word, Illustrator, InDesign, QuarkXpress, FreeHand etc.
Each font set contains three fonts—PharmaBraille Regular, PharmaBraille Grid and PharmaBraille Letter—all you need to apply Braille to pharmaceutical packaging artwork.
This is the font for embossing on pharmaceutical packs.
Extremely useful for visual verification of spacing.
Visual reference for placement outside the die-line area to check characters.
Note: While every care has been taken to check the accuracy of the symbols used in each language, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Please confirm Braille character sets with the relevant local Braille authority. The International Blindness Agencies Directory can help to identify Braille organisations for each country.
