Re: Problem connecting a Hims Braillesense to NVDA

P. Otter

that's rather strange, because i've the same braille display.
here it works just fine.
are you sure, there is no problem with the cable or connectors or with the display itself?
i'll search for a tool, to test if all is working correctly.
and when you plug in the display on the computer, is there a sound as usual?
if not, there is realy something wrong.

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.

Strange, the usr's manual says that a driver is required...

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 nvda.
so let he remove the installed driver and restart the computer and retry to connect the display

 as discribed above.
