David,

By abbreviations, I assume you mean acronyms.

The SWIFT utility (an add-in to Word) is made to handle these in a
pre-processing pass.

To do the job without SWIFT, you should make sure that such text is put in
the <acronym> style.  For a few acronyms in long documents, this is easily
done with search/replace.  But I do understand that the job becomes more
burdensome as the number of different acronyms relative to the whole
document size starts to increase.

Best Regards,

Peter

In British Braille is there anything that can be done to deal with IT and AS
which are used in sentences as abbreviations and so should not be contracted
to 'x' and 'z' in Braille.
