On both Earth 1 and Earth 2, the Time Vault has what appears to be braille text all over the its walls.

Time Vault Text

What, if anything, does the braille say? Does it read the same between universes?

Not only does it not say anything intelligible in braille, but it would appear that Reverse-Flash decorated his super-secret "vault" with $3 room tiles from allmodern and spray painted them silver to make them look futuristic.

What a poser.

    For the record, this tile reads: ed z er / of ed the. Assuming it's not upside down, in which case it's n z er / of ed z. This is based on English Braille, but it's entirely possible it might be some other language. Unlikely though. – Darrel Hoffman Apr 15 '16 at 16:33

    In French Braille, it's ëzï àëè, or nzï àëz if it's upside-down. – David Yaw Apr 15 '16 at 16:40

    They move/transform in-universe, so no, it does not cover the second point. – phantom42 Apr 15 '16 at 16:59

    And actually, you're right. It's not a partial answer, now it's just wrong, as the fact that panels transform means that they are not just $3 panels from some store. – phantom42 Apr 15 '16 at 17:52

    @phantom42 Why don't you edit your question to point out the fact that they move/transform? That seems like key information to me that is lacking in your question since moving/transforming means it is either random coolness or trying to communicate something which seems to be the heart of your question... – Erik Apr 15 '16 at 17:57

As a person who knows Braille, I can confidently say that this isn't Braille. True, it is braille formatting, but Darrel Hoffman is right as to what it says. Odds are the producers just flipped through a braille book and picked their favorite looking symbols.

  • But the symbols move and transform, this would change the meaning. – Edlothiad Jun 5 '18 at 20:26
  • As I pointed out above, this isn't braille period. These are decorative tiles that mean nothing at all. – Valorum Jun 5 '18 at 20:48
