I'll try and find it. Honestly I totally forgot to look yesterday, or I can
give you the page hwerein this list is. This guy posts all the
time and there are a lot of very very helpful people on there.

Here is the link to the list page. <> There
you will find all email addresses to sub, unsub and much much more. It will
probably be much much faster if you sub and ask your questions as you and I
are both very new to braille displays. Orbit are even on there so you get
to talk to the CO themselves.

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.
