RE: RS-232 to USB 2.0 cable for a braille display.
Sorry about that, I just realised that I hadn't emailed you the link I promised from Ebay!
Anyhow, this guy sells both the female cable and the male cable. On the back of my braille note it is a male connection, so I bought the female RS-232 to USB 2.0 cable to go on there.
It also came with a driver mini CD which works on my Windows 10 operating system.
I just use it as a braille display, rather than a note taker.
I know that when I enquired here at PBTech (in New Zealand) they only had a male RS-232 to USB cable, but apparently I could have bought an adapter for $10 to change it to female.
I have just had another quick look on Ebay for you. It seems that they also sell the RS-232 gender changers if you wanted to adapt the cable you already have. Sometimes though it is just as easy to get the proper cable already done. I have been happy with
the ones that I purchased. They are also nice and long.
