Latvian Braille is the braille alphabet of the Latvian language.

Alphabet

The alphabet is as follows.[1] It uses international w for v. All Latvian print diacritics are indicated by dot 6 in Latvian Braille; the international forms of u, v, and z have been abandoned to allow this to be a regular rule (compared to say Lithuanian Braille, which has a separate convention for such letters).
