Tactile Syllabary

There is a tactile syllabary for use by blind and visually-impaired language users.

Each cell is three rows by two columns of raised dots. The upper four dots generally denote the consonant, with syllables beginning with b, d, j, g, f or x being the exceptions. The lowest pair generally denote the vowel.

ʔ p b t d c j k g m n q l r f s x h

Dot 5 (⠐) by itself is the geminate. Word separation is shown by (⠀) an empty space, clause separation by (⠤) the comma, and sentence separation by (⠔) the period. Numbers are prefixed with (⠨) the number sign, and the first syllable of each number is used.
