An issue with Focus 14 Blue Reading status messages really quickly in iOS.

Braille on Apple Products
Hi All I've just received my Focus 14 Blue Braille Display today. It works wonderfully except for a slight issue. Any text that voiceover classes as a hint or status message, such as "Speech On"; only stays on the display for a few seconds at most. Not really enough time to read it. Has anyone else experienced this problem and if so, is there a work around or solutions. Any help is much appreciated. Debbie

This is an iOS thing, nothing to do with your display in particular. Alerts like that stay on the display for, as you said, only a few seconds, and there is no way to change the time they remain. I'd email if you want this to change. In the meantime, hit space-n to review past messages (press it again to dismiss it). You will be given a list of all messages that have appeared, most recent first. Be warned that this list can be quite crowded, since every message is there, from hints to data detectors to help messages.

Like the previous post said before it is a iOS issue and you have to email if you want this to change.
