Estonian alphabet

Estonian Braille is the braille alphabet of the Estonian language.[1]

Alphabet

Estonian Braille uses the international (read French) norms for the letters ä ö ü. Š and ž are mirror-images of s and z, a strategy found in other alphabets. Õ is the mirror-image of ä, as the mirror-image of o is used for ö.
