Braille Quiz (Dots to letter)

Welcome to the Brailile quiz. This quiz is aimed at checking your understanding of the cell assignments for different characters. We have assumed that you have gone through the tutorial pages discussing the principles of standard Braille applicable to English. In this quiz, you will be tested for identifying the character, given the dot pattern for the cell corresponding to that character. There is a reverse quiz presented separately where you have to mark the dots for a given letter.

In this quiz, you have to identify the character corresponding to a cell marked with dots. The cell will be seen below. This cell can be one of 63 different cells which correspond to the letters of the alphabet, punctuation and frequently used letter combinations. Please type in your answer in the text box shown below the cell and submit the page. The answer will be a letter of the alphabet, a frequently used string or a punctuation mark. In the case of cells representing more than one choice, you can type in any one of the alternatives. You may wish to refer to the chart provided in the tutorial on Braille for the names corresponding th the cells.

Within the cell, the presence of a dot is indicated through a larger filled circle and the absence of a dot indicated by a very small filled circle. This small circle is placed for you to identify the relative positions of the dots with respect to the first dot. When you submit your answer, a results page will be displayed indicating the correctness of your answer. A new cell will also be presented. The cells are chosen at random and will not appear in any predictable order. It is possible that you might see a cell repeated occasionally.
