Re: Function keys on orbit reader 40.

Sarah k Alawami, if you can poast that link I will be greatful, the
orbit reader user guide was uninformative.

There is a possibility that all of this is due to the fact that HID
support is at infancy, but I am not sure as I am new to using a
braille display with a screen reader. While I have downloaded braille
extender and will be exploring its features, I don't see them having
any use for me as the gestures I am trying to work with are already
defined in NVDA.

Hello Lino,
I use the Orbit Writer with my iPhone. As someone new to NVDA can you tell
me if you can use the Orbit Writer with a Windows laptop without having to
resort to the laptop keyboard for any reason ?

You need to read the manual Orbit Research has. I'm sure its located on
their site. I'm sure their commands specificly for NVDA. I have an Orbit
Writer. I don't know if the commands for the reader and writer are the
same or not.

I would suggest installing the BrailleExtender add-on, then reading its
help to discover the braille display keys that you need to use for your
particular purposes.

Is there anyway to make the function keys like space+n and space+t work
with NVDA. When I press space+n to go the NVDA menu on the orbit reader
40, there is no responce.
