[macvoiceover] Re: Connecting a Braille Note mPower to a Macbook

Which USB-to_serial adapter are you using? I imagine it comes with 
drivers for the Mac. Humanware technical support seemed to think my 
BrailleNote mPower DBC would work with the Mac. In fact, it turned out 
that the reason we couldn't use bluetooth was that there weren't drivers 
for this particular version of the Braille Note and bluetooth. Hopefully 
we'll have better luck with the adapter.

Thanks,
John
