Alphabet

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.

  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.
