The Braille system is widely used by blind people to read and write. Braille was devised in 1821 by Louis Braille, a blind Frenchman. Each Braille character or cell is made up of six dot positions, arranged in a rectangle containing two columns of three dots each. A dot may be raised at any of the six positions to form sixty-four (26) permutations, including the arrangement in which no dots are raised. For reference purposes, a particular permutation may be described by naming the positions where dots are raised, the positions being universally numbered 1 to 3, from top to bottom, on the left, and 4 to 6, from top to bottom, on the right. For example, dots 1-3-4 would describe a cell with three dots raised, at the top and bottom in the left column and on top of the right column, i.e., the letter m. The lines of horizontal Braille text are separated by a space, much like visible printed text, so that the dots of one line can be differentiated from the Braille text above and below. Punctuation is represented by its own unique set of characters.

still doesn't work
Final review of this usekess app and lousy company. Mindwarrior should be ashamed stealing money from the blind. The developer is dishonest and pathetic.
3 Oct. The app crashes when answers to quiz require entry of more than one braille character. I emailed the company and will post another comment if the issue is resolved.
1Nov. Update: Bought the app a month ago. . App has not yet been updatef and will not work on iphone5. Disappointed.
It has been 2 and 1/2 mos but the app still won't work on the iphone 5. I hope it is fixed before too long. I am in braille 2 and will be learning contracted braille soon.
I was hoping that this app would be useful in quizzing myself on braille 2. The quiz is great but as soon as you try to enter more than a one cell answer the app crashes.
It has a potential to be a great app but it kept crashing. :(
