OT: Braille Hexadecimal

Okay, so this has nothing to do with Linux or SBCs and almost nothing
to do with accessibility, but all I'm getting from Google is how
unicode handles visual braille and I figure these lists probably have
the highest concentration of those in the intersection of "geeky
enough to know hexadecimal" and "uses Braille on a regular basis".

So, in print or spoken, Hexadecimal uses the Letters A-F to represent
decimal values 10-15, but in braille, the letters A-F are already
doing double duty as the digits 1-6. I don't use braille, so I've
never run into this conflict of notation, but I find myself curious
how my braille reading peers resolve it.
