This part of ISO/TR 11548 specifies short identifiers for 8-dot Braille patterns in addition to the names specified in

ISO/IEC 10646-1:2000.

As there are many different code tables in use dealing with various character sets (e.g. Arabic, Chinese, Japanese,

Latin) and for special purposes (e.g. chemistry, mathematics and music notation), this part of ISO/TR 11548-1 also

defines a method of shifting between various Braille tables.

This part of ISO/TR 11548 is intended to be used by users and manufacturers of 8-dot Braille input and output

devices, interfaces and software for data exchange.

This part of ISO/TR 11548 does not apply to 6-dot Braille, and does not specify any physical dimension of Braille
