Icelandic alphabet

Icelandic Braille is the braille alphabet of the Icelandic language.

Alphabet

All letters are the same as in the Braille of the rest of the Nordic languages (excluding Sami languages, which is different). That is to say, ö in Icelandic is the same as ö in Swedish or ø in Danish; ð in Icelandic is the same as ð in Faroese. The differences, if any, are only in letters for punctuation. The base alphabet is the same as in French Braille.[1]

UNESCO (2013) reports that is both the mark of capitalization and the ellipsis. However, as they have wrong info about which letters mean which in the alphabet in regard to the Nordic countries, this information is not to be trusted.
