Hey there, awesome folks!
I hope you're all doing great. As a fellow iPhone 12 user who happens to be blind, I'm in need of your genius advice. Here's the thing: I'm having a bit of a struggle typing certain characters using braille input, like those maths symbols, curly braces, and the less than/greater than signs. It's a total hassle having to switch between the braille input and the on-screen keyboard all the time. So, here's my question: Do any of you know a way to directly input these characters using the braille input method? Your insights and any helpful resources would seriously make my day!
Thanks a million,
If you're using UEB it's much easier to input these symbols than, say, US or UK braille. I don't know the position with other languages. In UEB< the curly brackets are dots 4-5-6 then 1-2-6 for open and 3-4-5 for close. Square has the dots 4-6 prefix, round the dot 5 prefix. Less than is dot 4 then dots 1-2-6. Greater than is dot 4 then dot 3-4-5. If I don't know how to write a particular character in UEB I tend just experiment a little until I get there. That becomes easier once you have a general idea of the patterns and conventions UEB appears to follow. There are good resources for learning it all over the place.

"Thank you so much for your response! I really appreciate your help and the information you shared. I use UEB, and as a native Turkish speaker, I primarily rely on Turkish braille. However, I've found that Turkish braille can be a bit buggy when it comes to entering symbols like curly brackets, square and round brackets, less than, and greater than. That's why your explanation of using UEB with dots 4-5-6 and other patterns for these symbols is incredibly valuable to me. It seems like UEB provides a more robust solution. I'll definitely give it a try and explore the resources available for learning UEB further. Thanks again for taking the time to share your knowledge!"
