unable to use my HIMS Braillesense 6 as a braille display


Ashley Wayne
 

Hello,
I am using the most recent NVDA update and windows 10. Trying to use the BS6 via the USB connection, and NVDA does not automatically detect it. But the bs6 does show up under "braille" in settings, once I go to "change" braille display in the list. But when I select it, am told "braille display error, unable to load the Hims display" I have tried downloading the bs6 drivers from the HIMS website but with the same result. Would appreciate any advice, I’m sure it's something simple I’m not doing.

Hello, I definitely agree that a lot of Tony's add-on features are missing and necessary in NVDA core.
