Subject: Re: [nvda] braille me affordable braille display
Y'all will recall that BrailleMe came to the NVDA community for assistance
in putting together a display driver last year.
Earlier this year, late spring or perhaps very early summer, I got to see an
early prototype of BraillMe, and it showed a lot of promise. There were afew
rough edges, which I hope have been addressed in the final production
At $50 less than Orbit Reader 20, there are a couple things I'll observe.
First, the early prototype was a bit noisy, especially as the cursor
blinked. Also, sometimes a cell wouldn't populate correctly if you had your
finger on it. I hope these shortcomings got addressed. Also, this says it's
a six-dot cell, not eight. This might be an issue for some, although I must
say I never used those extra dots myself. On the plus side, display refresh
is instantaneous, and there are cursor routing buttons for each cell, a
feature the Orbit lacks. So if they really do release on 4th January, we
could well have a winner here.
