Talk:Mainland Chinese Braille
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
3 other sources shows that the braille for yang, iang should be the 'x' (dots 1,3,4,6) not the 'z' as shown in this article.
I am very new to Wikipedia, so I am unsure of how to make a correction.
The Zhuyin article says it's the basis of Chinese braille...
What about blind computer users trying to learn about braille? Look at the Vietnamese Braille page and you'll see that they showed each character twice: once in graphical format and once in text format for people who can't see the graphics (they listed the character name followed by the dot numbers for the braille). Your page would be a lot more useful if you listed the characters in text format also. Then everyone could learn about Chinese braille: people with old browsers that don't display the graphics AND also people who are blind! Please share your info in non-graphic format also.

I tried to put the Braille ASCII codes in some time ago. Incidentally it is trivial to convert Unicode Braille into ASCII Braille so I hope more software can support such conversion (in particular it would be nice if embossers and displays could take Unicode Braille as well as ASCII Braille) Silas S.

Template:Indiscussion In the lead section, "Chinese braille" should be translated as "中文盲文" ("中文點字" in Hong Kong) as there is no meaning of "current" at the term "Chinese braille". And, Chinese braille doesn't only include the Mandarin Chinese one but also Cantonese. I suggest the title move from Chinese braille to "Mandarin Chinese braille" or "Putonghua braille". --Naiveandsilly (talk) 10:47, 15 April 2012 (UTC)
Move discussion in progress
There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:Refreshable Braille display which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RMCD bot 16:25, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
Apart from quaint spelling, the part of the syllable encoded by the second cell (which includes the medial) is usually called the "final". Kanguole 11:31, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
- The rime (for some unknown reason, the common spelling re. Chinese) is the medial plus the final. Yang is not a final, but it is a rime. — kwami (talk) 08:07, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
- No, it's the other way round, which is why there are more finals than rhymes. e.g. Norman, Chinese pp27–28. Kanguole 18:37, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
