ummmm.... why didn't the author use Unicode? Hexagon1 07:00, 13 March 2006 (UTC)
- This the author. There are two reasons I didn't use Unicode.
- The author doesn't know unicode, and therefore would have no way to program/implement it.
- The author thinks that spending 10 hours translating an entire page into Braille ASCII art is funnier than spending 10minutes doing the same. Plus, you'd actually have to print it out and find someone fluent in braille (blind... or just nice, I guess) to translate this back for you. The amount of effort put in + the amount of effort to get it back out + the fact that you really don't have to do either anyway = funny.

If a infinite number of rednecks went around shooting an infinite number of stop signs with their shotguns, would they eventually produce the entire works of Shakespear in Braille?
- No. They would produce something lower-class, like Milton.--

edit Well, I think it's funny...

- I like it too! But couldn't you just use a monospaced font rather than those nasty-looking preformatted boxes? • Spang • • 16:59, 2 June 2006 (UTC)
What does it say? Aaadddaaammm 08:37, 22 September 2006 (UTC)
- Heh heh... this is one of the secrets of Uncyclopedia. You are encouraged to print this out, raise the dots, locate a blind person, and have them translate it for you. It'll make them feel important.-- 12:03, 22 September 2006 (UTC)
edit I don't understand
- It actually worked perfectly using Wikipedia once upon a time. Some formatting issues have made it imperfect since then (the addition of the picture comes to mind). If you post what you believe it says on my talk page, you will get an award for your trouble. I will try to assist, but if I just GIVE you the answer, it isn't NEARLY as much fun. ;)-- 04:33, 9 November 2006 (UTC)
I've found that something is wrong. For example, the "r" in Braille is ⠗ (1,2,3,5), but here appears as :. (2,3,6). I understand the reason why it is like that; so could you show me the symbols you used for this article? -R2D2! talk
- Dose it translate internationaly? 22.214.171.124 04:25, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
- I used Wikipedia's article and did this by hand slowly over the course of an entire day. It's essentially ASCII art the uses Braille as a base. Some of the words got messed up when pictures were added.-- 12:37, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
edit braille in general
This I find ridulously funny. While this is meant to "look" like braille, braille displays have not resembled it, (no in this article). i guess having to find a program like duxbury and print it in "raw" format would help some. Screen readers do not help either; I find this funny since braille is supposed to be readable by the blind, but my screen reader becomes totally unintelligible. 126.96.36.199 13:33, 15 May 2007 (UTC)
edit There's an easy way to translate this
Yeah, there's an easy way to translate this, but I'm not going to spoil the fun by telling you precisely how. Just know that it involves clicking on one of the little tabs near the top of this page (no prizes for guessing which one :). Actually, it's quite by chance that this method works. I don't know why the author bothered to make my method possible. Anyway, for those of you who are curious, the text actually consists of two paragraphs taken mainly from wikipedia's article on Braille, and a paragraph of funny stuff (well, actually, stuff that makes fun of the reader not being able to understand what's written on here)...
