How it works

Binary Braille, nicknamed BinBraille, is an abstraction from conventional Braille, in Braille each letter, symbol or number is represented by 6 possible points, where with the combination of these points the letters are formed, following an example:

Image of the braille

In Binary Braille, we change the points marked by 1 and where we don't mark anything we put 0, for this variation of zeros and one, the abstraction is called Binary Braille. The same pattern of letters in the image above would look like this in the Binary Braille system:

[ "1", "0" ],  [ "1", "0" ],  [ "1", "1" ],  [ "1", "1" ]
[ "0", "0" ],  [ "1", "0" ],  [ "0", "0" ],  [ "0", "1" ]
[ "0", "0" ],  [ "0", "0" ],  [ "0", "0" ],  [ "0", "0" ]
     a              b    c   d

Coverage

At the moment, character coverage is throughout the alphabet, numbers, single characters and complex symbols:

(","";"":""?""!""@""-""*""&""$"">""<""=""+""/""%""©")

However, it still doesn't support specificities of other languages
