From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  Baudot code
  
      (For etymology, see baud) A character set
     predating EBCDIC and used originally and primarily on paper
     tape.  Use of Baudot reportedly survives in TDDs and some
     HAM radio applications.
  
     In Baudot, characters are expressed using five bits.  Baudot
     uses two code sub-sets, the "letter set" (LTRS), and the
     "figure set" (FIGS).  The FIGS character (11011) signals that
     the following code is to be interpreted as being in the FIGS
     set, until this is reset by the LTRS (11111) character.

     Where CR is carriage return, LF is linefeed, BELL is the
     bell, SP is space, and STOP is the stop character.
  
     Note: these bit values are often shown in inverse order,
     depending (presumably) which side of the paper tape you were
     looking at.
  
     Local implementations of Baudot may differ in the use of #,
     STOP, BELL, and '.
