Kyrgyz alphabet

The braille alphabet used for the Kyrgyz language is based on Russian Braille, with a few additional letters found in the print Kyrgyz alphabet.


  • Alphabet 1
  • Punctuation 2
  • Formatting 3

  • References 5


Kyrgyz Braille uses the entire Russian Braille alphabet, though some letters are only found in loans, and in addition has the letters ң, ө, ү.

Although the non-Russian letters ң ө ү are found in many other Cyrillic alphabets, their braille assignments are unrelated to those or with international norms.[2] Compare the ң, ө, ү of Kazakh Braille, for example.


The question mark differs from Russian Braille.

  1. ^ Unesco (2013) has an apparent copy error for и, , which duplicates the Kyrgyz Braille colon.
  2. ^ Though perhaps just coincidence, the letter ү may be an exception, as it somewhat resembles a Latin v and is written as a v in braille.
