What is an .BRL file?
.BRL is MicroBraille File
File saved in the MicroBraille (BRL) format; encodes contracted braille characters (Grade 2 Braille) in braille ASCII, which uses 64 characters from the ASCII character set to represent dot combinations in six-dot braille; can be read by software that supports braille to speech functionality or braille embossers used for printing.
Similar to the more common .BRF file extension. BRL and BRF files are commonly used for making digital publications available to those who are blind.
