Three short articles about foreign language braille are presented for braille transcribers and teachers of the visually handicapped. Because dictionaries of languages other than English rarely show syllable division, the first article provides guidelines to the syllabication of Latin. The guidelines give specific rules concerning the division of diphthongs and consonantal units, adverbial prefixes, and compound words. The second article gives foreign language transcribers suggestions for dealing with the vocabulary in pictorial exercises. The third article offers advice to transcribers on the appropriate use of the letter sign. (LH)
