Will the accented letters in Esperanto show up when using a Braille display if the Braille display doesn’t specifically support the Esperanto language and if so how would they show up?

    It depends on the display model and the system driving it. Can you provide that information? Feb 25 at 5:46

Most likely, this would depend on the Braille tables available in the Braille display's "driver" or screen reader. For example, the open-source Braille translator and formatter Liblouis has Braille tables for many languages, including Esperanto. At the bottom of the Braille table for Esperanto I find the following codes for a number of accented letters:

uplow Ĉĉ 146        LATIN LETTER C WITH CIRCUMFLEX
uplow Ĝĝ 12456      LATIN LETTER G WITH CIRCUMFLEX
uplow Ĥĥ 1256       LATIN LETTER H WITH CIRCUMFLEX
uplow Ĵĵ 2456       LATIN LETTER J WITH CIRCUMFLEX
uplow Ŝŝ 2346       LATIN LETTER S WITH CIRCUMFLEX
uplow Ŭŭ 346        LATIN LETTER U WITH BREVE

Liblouis is used in the open-source screen readers NVDA (for Windows) and Orca (for the Gnome desktop on Linux).

Considering the Esperanto accented letters are almost exclusive to Esperanto I'd say there's a slim chance the display would support them.
