Re: Brailliant Bi32 display and NVDA

Claire Potter <claire.potter99@...>

Hi, the protocol is Humanware, I'm using it via USB, as for the commands, there's nothing I can find other than some basic commands which are quite limited. 

Warm regards, Claire Potter,   Check out my brand new website:

Just some questions:

1 - What protocol are you using? Humanware, OpenBraille or via Bluetooth?
2 - If you are using OpenBraille or Bluetooth , NVDA will recognize the Braille display automatically.

3 - Did you checked the tables of commands for your display in NVDA User Guide?

Is that because of the version of nvda in use, or the driver supplied by the maker?

Yeah, the 6 command keys don’t’ work. Same goes for the thumb keys in some apps.

What problem do you have when you do enter these commands?  What goes wrong?

Hi all, I have recently started to use a Brailliant BI32 display, however I

would like some help with the following please. I want to know what the

NVDA support is like, as upon first impressions I am quite shocked at how

limited it is, bearing in mind that I want to execute common Windows

commands using the Braille display. I am talking about commands such as

pressing control to stop speech temporarily, commands such as alt+f4, and

in fact any commands which involve the function keys, along with commands

such as control+home and control+end, page up, page down, etc.  Can anyone

help please? Warm regards, Claire Potter
