Re: Connecting An Orbit 40 To A Computer Running NVDA

Hi Brian,

I believe the trouble is that I can not load the "Baum/Humanware/APH/Orbit braille displays" driver in NVDA.

Orbit research says they can load this driver in NVDA.


Thank you for your suggestions.

Did I not read that the HID Braille drivers have quirks someplace? I know Google has not been able to do the system on their bluetooth systems in Android.
I have no Braille display, but I read about this problem somewhere in passing, so maybe there is another way to make them talk to each other.
Would you not have thought that their other model might share the same drivers?

Subject: Connecting An Orbit 40 To A Computer Running NVDA

Folks,

In order to connect an Orbit Research Orbit 40 Braille display to a computer
running NVDA you must put the Orbit 40 into the varioultra40 emulation mode,
and set the Orbit 40 to use the hid orbit USB connection type.
You must then go to the NVDA braille settings and select the
Baum/Humanware/APH/Orbit braille displays driver. When I select this driver
and hit OK, I get "Braille Display Error dialog Could not load the baum
display.".

Has anyone seen this error? Is anyone using an Orbit 40 with NVDA; if so,
what is your braille driver setting?

I have tried the NVDA automatic mode Braille option and, while that loads,
the Orbit 40 does not connect to it. Orbit research says this is an NVDA
issue.

Any help would be appreciated.
