Isn't 8-dot braille mainly used in computer braille?  Also, the QT
keyboards on some notetakers use the a and semicolon keys for producing
dots 7 and 8.  I personally can't stand 8 dot braille.

Just to expand a little on this topic, 8 dot braille is
indeed more commonly used with braille displays, although a
number of European country users particularly do emboss hard
copy.

There is a detailed explanation at http://8dotbraille.com
and a Google search for "8 dot braille" will provide more
sources of information.
