Hi Jackie,


Though I may well enjoy reading all of this - and it could persuade me to buy it - I discovered it's "log in" only. I know this was to be a "paid for" item. Is this the case, or can I just give myself a log in to the site and get it anyway?

Hi Carol

Go to
www.mysticaccess.com/braillenote-touch-tutorial.

You can download the entire thing in either MP3 or DAISY format.  I am
working my way through it at the moment, and find it pretty good.  If this
isn't what you are referring to, I apologise, but recommend it anyway.

Kind Regards,

Yes, Mike's still looking at it.


Did you manage to find podcasts 11-12, by the way? They didn't show up in
their usual Youtube home and I haven't found them as yet.


The good thing if Mike gets one, in the end, is that I get to help sort
it and play, of course! <Smiles>

Hi Carol

Thanks, but not really.  Using a separate Android or iOS device with
Braille
just isn't my bag.  I'm probably an old-fashioned girl in that I prefer an
all-in-one device, but something which has a modern browser, and lets me
do
all the things I want with Braille built into it.  So the BrailleNote
Touch
is the only option, and that is my goal!

Jackie,


Have you used the virtual clipboard setting. This (theoretically) lets you
input Braille as fast as you want then send it off to whatever device
you're
wanting to send to. Yes, the waiting comes at the stage where you're
sending
the written text to the device you wish to receive it as it first has to
input it into the phone which, actually, isn't any quicker than putting it
directly into the phone and allowing for the lag, but HIMS think it is!
<BG>>


At least you can play around a bit with the Braille.


I have yet to determine whether this facility is limited to 255
characters,
which I did think may be the case at some point, and I'm going to ask HIMS
directly about this.


The command on the notetakers used to be different from that on the Smart
Beetle but it could well be that they've changed that command to be a
universal one. The command I use on the Smart Beetle is
CTRL+C+Enter. I can't remember off the top of my head what I used to use
(occasionally) with the Sense. Rajmund probably remembers though. I can
ask
him if you can't!


Does this help at all?

Hi John

I just find that if you write a message in Braille like on a U2, it is
laggy.  The time between you putting in each letter and those letters
appearing on the display is very slow, to me at least.

hi all
futher to my last on braille one difficulty with the android set-up with
braille is that you have to change the keyboard to the hardware keyboard.
now of course with the el-braille or touch this will not happen and of
course you will have grade 2 braille i think.

the ease of use with a stand alone is massive. though it can be done the
cheap way it is very very fiddley to do.

strange though i do find with the iphone my braille is very fast unlike
jackie. i do use the american computer braille though so when i enter a
number for number six i press lower f.
