Re: How can I get the date from a Braille display?
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
This is almost a finger-twisting exercise to accomplish using Braille Extender app as you’d need to issue four commands altogether in rapid succession, meaning two sets of two different key combinations. I tried unsuccessfully many times, and nothing showed on the display. However, there is a neat alternative, which shows the time and the date all at once on the display.
Are you using the Braille Extender? If not, where might I find a similar command for the date (from a Braille display) if I were to temporarily disable this app?

Alright. What happens when you issue NVDA+F12 twice rapidly from the Braille keyboard then?

On both PCs (one Windows 10, the other Windows 7) running NVDA 2019.3.1 and with both the voice and Braille display turned on, I got the following:
NVDA+F12: announces and displays time
NVDA (held down)+F12 (twice rapidly): announces and displays date, including the day
Anybody else using a Braille display with a Braille keyboard who can check if it is possible to issue the command to show the date?
By the way, and not using a braille display, when I wanted to get the date announced when NVDA was running I did hold down NVDA then hit F12 twice in rapid succession.
