Chile, Musica Y Braille Library

Material in TBU Format (Text-Braille Unicode)

Our library offers free access to braille scores in text format containing alphanumeric characters and braille unicode patterns (TBU format). This allows our files to be compatible with all current text editors. They are also compatible with braille displays, embossers, and most importantly, with screen readers that make it possible to describe braille cells dot by dot.


To access our material, go to the Contact section of the main menu. Keep in mind that, in accordance with the regulations of the Marrakesh Treaty to which we adhere, the administration will request a digital copy of your disability credential.
