Re: Old Braille Displays
Howard Traxler <howard@...>
The last few JAWS releases did not support the powerbrailles in serial. So, one had to get a parallel cable to use jaws. Newer computers no longer have parallel ports. Now, it seems that NVDA does not have drivers for the powerbraille or the alva. Hence, I wondered if there's a way to used some other software to drive those displays?toggle quoted message Show quoted text

I have a couple of the parallel port adaptors that plug into usb, and they seem to drive old printers fine. don't know about other things of course. I do have an rs 232 on my latest pc on a card and that seems to work fine as above. I guess it depends on how the Braille display uses it.
