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.

abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

Example: 'Braille' is written ⡃⠗⠁⠊⠇⠇⠑

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.
