Note: The braille dot cells are indicated by giving their dot numbers and enclosing in square brackets. Dot 1 is the dot on the upper left, dot 2 just below dot 1, and dot 3 just below dot 2. Dot 4 is on the upper right, dot 5 just below it, and dot 6 just below dot 5. Click here for a text-only version of this page.

Most cells have several meanings depending on whether they stand alone, appear at the beginning, in the middle, or at the end of a word. Many can appear with indicator cells to form multiple cell symbols for a group of letters. We give only the single cell primary meaning in this list.
