Hi Brian and All.
Sorry, buti am just getting to this message now, and I think the topic has basicallyb een closed, but I didn’t want to not convey at least some understanding of Brian’s excellent explanation.
I’ve never seen a thing in my life and am a braille user, but I do understand the “unbridgable gulf” mentioned here pretty well anyway, at least in theory. Though I couldn’t really tell you what most specific fonts actually look like in practice, typography is certainly interesting, and I’ve worked with a few different ones in my time for different purposes. This is something a braille reader just has to accept as part of the print experience we will never really and truly have an equivalent for, but, just like cinematography in film, it’s a very interesting “science” that it’s useful to know some things about.

That depends, at least from a "how it looks" perspective, on the type used. It certainly appears that either some use a 2-space convention or the type itself has a somewhat wider space.
