Re: Using Freedom Scientific Braille Display in Windows 10

I did. You are an absolute lifesaver! It worked like a dream! I guess the drivers are not natively included in Windows 10 like they are for some displays.
 
Now, if anyone's got a Win10 64 bit USB driver for the Alva Satelite 584 Pro, I think it is? That would be incredible!

Try it... It works!
