Re: Problem connecting a Hims Braillesense to NVDA


Ok, Michelle, forgive me for asking a few dumb questions here, but:
1) Have you tried another cable? It could be the cable's bad.
2) Have you tried another port? Same applies, &/or there could be an
3) Have you tried resetting the BrailleSense? Sometimes these problems
go away w/a reset.

Just thinking out loud, the advice is likely worth what you paid for it.

hmm, I too have a Braille Sense U2, I installed a driver to get it to
work via usb, but I have not used it in a while. I should check it out once
I reinstall NVDA on my computer.

hello, yes it is, very strange.
per haps for other screenreaders but not with nvda.
put the usb connector into the computer and choose inside the menu of
nvda for the hims that's the driver for all of the hims displays like smart
beetle, or braillesense or what ever.
i know, there are also braille displays they need an installed driver
before or when you use a bluetooth connection.
but not with hims if connected with usb.

hi, i think, that's the problem he has installed a driver for the
braille sense.
there is no need to install any driver.
he has to go inside the menu of nvda there choose braille and
there for the hims.
that's all!
he has nothing else to do.
i have the same braillesense and it works fine with the newest
so let he remove the installed driver and restart the computer and
retry to connect the display

as discribed above.
