Hi Chaals,

Thank you for your test results! I did have a look at the braille display, but I’m not sure what to expect or look for when testing with it.

Does anyone have good resources on this?

I’ve setup a GitHub repository called Font Awesome <https://github.com/MichielBijl/font-awesome> (because we initially targeted that specific library; should rename it). I’ve already added one test example and some test results, but suggestions for more examples (ways to fix the issue of icon fonts being announced weird), or test results for existing tests, or even tips on how to display test results properly; it’s all welcome!
