Yugoslav Braille is a family of closely related braille alphabets used for South Slavic languages of former Yugoslavia, namely Serbo-Croatian, Slovene and Macedonian. It is based on the unified international braille conventions, with the letters corresponding to their Latin transliterations.

Unesco reports that Croatian Braille swaps the Serbian quotation marks for parentheses and the period/full stop for the apostrophe, but it's possible that this is due to a copy error; the table below follows Croatian Wikipedia, which agrees with Serbian, for these characters. There is less punctuation reported for Slovene and Macedonian Braille, but what there is matches Serbian conventions.
Blank cells in the tables are unattested.

The superscript is reported for Croatian Braille; in Serbian Braille, ⠌ is used for the virgule /. In Slovene Braille, the emphasis (bold/italic) marker ⠸ is reported to be an abbreviation sign.
Croatian Wikipedia states that ⠠ is used for capital letters.
- ^ a b c d e The Croatian apostrophe ⠲ is unusual by international standards, and it is possible the period and apostrophe were swapped in a copy error by Unesco (2013) and copied from them to other sources. Croatian Wikipedia gives ⠲ for the period and ⠶ for parentheses, both agreeing with Serbian Braille.
