I'm not sure I understand what you are doing. The list contains just a
relatively small subset of IPA characters. But are you using IPA?
"Phonetic alphabet" is a vague expressions, though in international
contexts it normally means IPA. And I cannot see why many of the phonetic
characters would be "useless in braille".
Anyway, Arabic KHAH (KHA', KHA), U+062E is normally described as having
the phonetic value denoted in IPA by [x] (i.e., the small Latin letter x),
and the "a" in English "about" is SCHWA in IPA, i.e. U+0259. I have no
idea of what you might mean by CHAN as an Arabic letter or sound.
