Braille is as important to a blind person as print is to someone
who can see. I do not see any sighted person saying they should
give up print because of technology. I am glad NVDA developers
are working on making it braille friendly. The fact that braille
displays are too expensive should not discourage learning braille
as prices are bound to come down and many get those devices the
government or private programs, anyway.

selected store. So I simply used the ordinary keyboard.

I agree. Luckily, the National Health Service here in Italy
gives us
braille displays, either totally paid by the National Health
itself, or partly - depending on the cost of the device.

I used an Optacon before the advent of braille displays, and
do, but on paper and ereaders; no longer on a pc screen, due
uncomfortable position of my workstation.

I couldn't live without braille! I switched to NVDA only once
support was introduced.

Tis is just a question. I see a lot of work going on on the
development front to make these displays and the entering of
code more intuitive and better.
I just wondered how many folk here can afford to use a
display on their machines? Since the promised Orbit seems to
having issues getting out  of the factory, most of the other
out there need a second mortgage to buy them!

Just musing that was all.
