Persian Braille is the braille alphabet for the Persian language. It is largely compatible with Arabic Braille, which may be found (in uncontracted form)[1] within Persian Braille texts. There are a few additional letters.[2]

Persian Braille is read from left to right, following the international convention. Numbers are also left to right, rather than switching direction as they do in printed Arabic.
