The Pattern in the Braille Code



The first ten letters, a through j, all use the top part of the braille cell: dots 1, 2, 4, and 5.

The next ten letters, k through t, are made by adding dot 3 to each of the first 10 letters.

In the final row of the alphabet, all of the letters—with the exception of "w"!—are formed by adding dot 6 to the previous row.

So why doesn't "w" follow the pattern? Good question! Back in 1860, there was no "w" in the French alphabet, so Louis Braille didn't include it in his code.
