Re: Brltty with Windows 10 Creators update


 

Hi,

Did you happen to tell Narrator to turn on braille support (if you have Creators Update)?

Cheers,

Joseph

The reason using Brltty can be important is because it supports thos old, no longer produced, no longer documented Braille displays. And you can find them on Ebay for a song!


I still don't have Brltty working in Win10 but I was incorrect in my previous post. I can't actually find a brltty.conf file at all, so I'm guessing my settings for current display and interface port are stored elsewhere.  I was looking at my windows 7 machine where the brltty.conf is in C:\Program Files (x86)\BRLTTY\etc. In my Windows 10 machine, I have a brltty folder directly under the windows folder. Then there's an etc folder under that, and a brltty folder under that but no brltty.conf.

I'd really like to get this working, and am avoiding calling the Microsoft Disability Answer desk, because I bet they know less about Brltty than I do.
