A Focus 40 Blue. I don't know how to get Bluetooth working for it, though. It came with two cables, a short one and a long one. I used the long one so I could sit back with it on my lap, but then it started dropping out if I didn't use one hand to hold the
plugin place, and by then I'd mislaid the shorter cable. My sister found something else with plugs that fit at both ends, but the cord was too thin to handle the information and would only work for about two seconds before dropping out again. I don't know
where to buy a sufficiently durable cable for this display, and thought I'd have to go through the company directly, as the manual said.

So, what kind of Braille display do you have? And what kind of cord are you having a problem with?
Just perhaps a replacement cord isn’t nearly as expensive as you believe it will be at all. Most of the cords on mose Braille displays these days are one or another kind of a USB cable and can be gotten rather
cheaply from any number of sources including Best Buy.
My name is Sharni, S-h-a-r-n-i. And I bought a Braille Display a couple years back. Waste of money. The cable started acting up when I'd barely used it and I don't know where to buy a new one, and it probably costs another couple hundred dollars because
that's how blind tech companies work when they want to make a profit. Besides, my arms would get tired after reading like that for a while, and having to scroll manually takes all the joy out of reading. Get over your narrow-minded self.

But not all books are made into audio books. In fact, the vast majority are not. And if you're into online fiction, synth reading is the only game in town.
