Braille Patterns

U+2800 – U+28FF   (10240–10495)

The Braille Patterns range was introduced with version 3.0 of the Unicode Standard. Named after its inventor, Louis Braille, it is a system for writing or printing that can be read by the blind using their fingertips, using patterns of raised dots embossed into paper, card or plastic, or groups of rods that can be raised and lowered.

Microsoft Windows incorporates support for Braille Patterns Unicode from Windows 7 onwards.

The characters that appear in the first column of the following table depend on the browser that you are using, the fonts installed on your computer, and the browser options you have chosen that determine the fonts used to display particular character sets, encodings or languages.

You can find some or all of the characters in this range in the Windows Unicode fonts Braille, Code2000, DejaVu Sans, DejaVu Sans Condensed, DejaVu Serif, DejaVu Serif Condensed, Fixedsys Excelsior, Free Monospaced, Marin, Quivira, Segoe UI Symbol (in Windows 7), Sun-ExtA, UniBurma and YOzFontN; in the Macintosh OS X Unicode font Apple Symbols; and in the Unix Unicode font ClearlyU.

To see exactly which characters are included in a particular font, you can use a utility such as Andrew West’s BabelMap, or WunderMoosen’s FontChecker.

If you are not familiar with the characters, you can check the characters displayed here with the graphical display at http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U2800.pdf.
