I would ask the Royal New Zealand Foundation for the Blind
http://www.rnzfb.org.nz for more information (I found them with a search
engine so I don't know them or a lot about them) whether anyone has developed
a braille contraction set for te reo Maori (but it seems not).

(While I was searching I did find some online translation services though,
and managed to use this one: http://kel.otago.ac.nz/translator/ - I thought
it was cool <grin/>)

  I am trying to find out about braille and how it handles the (New

  Does anyone know where I can find out what languages braille will handle?

  Cheers folks
