The objective of this Technical Report is, in addition to ISO/IEC 10646-1:2000 which encodes 8-dot Braille patterns, to assign semantics to 8-dot Braille patterns via mapping to other coded character sets. Their coding with the 8-bit code is determined in order to set guidelines for the manufacturing of compatible input and output equipment using the Braille system. This enables visually-impaired persons to interprete the output of data processing equipment and facilitates communication with sighted people.
