In 1829, Louis Braille, a tender organist in a Paris church, blind on the grounds that age three, invented the well known code for the blind, nonetheless in universal use at the present time around the world and named after him. Braille himself transformed his code in 1834, and there were numerous transformations on the grounds that. notwithstanding, the elemental layout of this code, the place every one personality is represented via a gaggle of three x 2 dots, has remained intact. The dots are embossed on thick paper and every might be raised or flat (i. e. , current or absent). every one dot is for that reason akin to one little bit of details. for that reason, the Braille code (Figure 1) is a 6-bit code and will as a result signify sixty four symbols (the code of six flat dots exhibits a clean space). Braille's fans prolonged the features of his code in numerous methods. One im­ portant extension is contractions. those are letters that, once they stand on my own, suggest phrases. for instance, the letter "b" status on my own (or with punctuation) capacity the notice "but," the letter "e" status by myself potential "every," and "p" skill "people. " one other extension is short-form phrases. those are mixtures of 2 or extra codes that suggest a whole observe (short-form phrases might include contractions). for instance, "ab" ability "about," "rcv" capacity "receive," and "(the)mvs" potential "themselves. " (The "the" in parentheses is a contraction, dots 2-3-4-6. ) determine 2 exhibits a few examples of those specified codes.

To eliminate the effect of symbol X from the code, the decoder performs the operation Code:=(Code-LowRange(X))/Range, where Range is the width of the subrange of X. 26 summarizes the steps for decoding our example string. 27a.

Until March 1993, the ITU-T was known as the Consultative Committee for International Telephone and Telegraph (Comite Consultatif International Telegraphique et Telephonique, or CCITT). The first data compression standards developed by the ITU-T were T2 (also known as Group 1) and T3 (Group 2). These are now obsolete and have been replaced by T4 (Group 3) and T6 (Group 4).

1 Uncornpressed Codes If the symbols being compressed are ASCII characters, they may simply be assigned their ASCII codes as uncompressed codes. In the general case where there can be any symbols, uncompressed codes of two different sizes can be assigned by a simple method. Here is an example for the case n = 24. The first 16 symbols can be assigned the numbers a through 15 as their codes. These numbers require only 4 bits, but we encode them in 5 bits. Symbols 17 through 24 can be assigned the numbers 17 - 16 - 1 = 0, 18-16-1 = 1 through 24-16-1 = 7 as 4-bit numbers.
