Editing with a braille display
I'm wondering if anyone has any tips to make editing in braille a smoother experience. Currently, when I try to insert letters in a word, or correct a miss typed braille symbol, the word I typed gets translated, but so does other parts of the word. Sometimes, new words will be added or moved around even though I wasn't working on them. Unfortunately, this makes editing in braille practically impossible, which removes one of the primary use cases for a braille display. Is this experience common, and does anyone know if there's a workaround to be able to use braille as intended?
It is simply nightmare to edit text using braille display on iPadOS/iOS. However I found it to be a little bit stable when you set the braille table to UEB. Sometimes the cursor does not synch with speech, so try clicking the routing cursor more than once to synchronize braille with speech. Also make sure QuickNav is off on your display when you edit, it sometimes switches back on automatically. Space with Q to to toggle it on and off.
Thank you. That is all very helpful. Do you have any idea of fixes for random parts of the word translating, and adding different parts of the word around ? I honestly don’t have a great way to explain this; literally text Jess goes everywhere.
I suggest you report this to Apple as a bug at firstname.lastname@example.org. The more people who tell them it is a problem, the more chance they might get around to fix it one day. In the meantime, editing works better on a QUERTY bluetooth keyboard.
fair eNough. Does anyone have a better way of defining the problems? I feel like it manifests really inconsistently
