Hi there. I just downloaded this app, and... Well... The free version only reads 1 sentence from a book? also, the price tag is... Just... Well... 70 US Dollars? Just Why? I am completely confused.
This braille Talk app sounds like a much more expensive version of Voice Dream Reader. That app only costs $15 as opposed to $70. Which would you rather pay for?
Am I missing something, or does this defeat the purpose of downloading brailled books to be read using a refreshable braille display? If I download a book with a .brf extension, it is for the purpose of reading it myself, using braille, rather than having it read aloud to me. I also agree about it apparently being an expensive Voice Dream Reader.display?
If you want to read a book with a braille display, then use the bard app, or even download accessible notetaker or whatever that app is called that lets you do some reading of brf files. but I used to download a lot of brf books but I liked them read out loud so I used my braille notetaker to do that, but now I have voice dream so this app is not just late to the party, but also expensive.
I'm having a problem with braille books. I downloaded one and opened it and tried to read it, but it was just a jumble of letters numbers and symbols.
