Welsh Braille

Welsh Braille is a version of Braille used to write Welsh. It uses most of the same letters as used in English Braille, with some doubled letters, but the words the letters can represent are different.

The Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) Cymru in partnership with the Welsh Language Board publish publications in Welsh Braille, including a Welsh-English dictionary. There is also is version of the New Testament and Psalms in Welsh Braille, which was published in 2010.

Sample texts in Braille

Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Braille


Genir pawb yn rhydd ac yn gydradd â'i gilydd mewn urddas a hawliau. Fe'u cynysgaeddir â rheswm a chydwybod, a dylai pawb ymddwyn y naill at y llall mewn ysbryd cymodlon.


All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
