Answers to Questions (FAQ)

How to encrypt using Gardner–Salinas 8 Braille?

The Braille variant called Gardner – Salinas 8 (GS8) is an extension of Braille with 8 points instead of 6. Supported by Unicode (characters U + 2800 to U + 28FF) its use has spread a little, it allows to use 256 characters instead of the usual 64.

The principle of GS8 is identical to Braille, it matches a Braille character to a common character (letter, number, punctuation, etc.). The contribution of the GS8 is mainly for science and mathematical symbols.

Lower case letters are identical to classic Braille, upper case letters are noted with an additional point (bottom left)

How to decrypt Gardner–Salinas 8 Braille?

Identify the lines of braille, and separate each character so that it has 2 columns of 4 dots (at most, it can be less).

Replace each Braille character with the corresponding character in the GS8 Braille alphabet.

How to recognize a Braille GS8 message?

The message is made up of dots joined into vertical 2x4 rectangles.

All references to visual impairment (visually impaired, blind person, etc.) are clues.
