moderated Re: Identifying emojis with braille displays?

I am a literary braille transcribing student through the NFB. personal experience and the manual both confirm the answer to your question is no. typically anything of that sort must be identified and described in a transcribers special symbols note. hope this helps.

´╗┐Hi folks,


Using braille, is there anyway to identify emojis? Of course, when I'm just using speech output, the characters are correctly spoken. But so far, on my Orbit 20 Plus display, all I see for emojis is two full braille cells side by side. I've figured out this is an emoji, but have no idea what it is without invoking speech.


I'd have to pull it out and connect it to test, but I think this also happened on my old RB18.


Is there anyway of identifying emojis using a braille display?


Thanks,
