help with braille screen input on iPhone SE 2020

Forum
Braille on Apple Products

When I try using braille screen input on my iPhone SE, in landscape mode, it only recognises 5 fingers, not six. Is this a limitation of iPhone SE? It seems easier to use braille screen input on my iPad 10.2 inch device. Also how do I position my fingers on iPhone SE for screen away mode? It said like a print letter v in the article I read, but I do not know what a V looks like. So help with my braille screen input issues would be appreciated thanks.

Seems to work fine on my iPhone 8, you may just need some practice. A print letter V looks like this: imagine a triangle with one side going flat across the top; cut that line off and you have a print letter v. Basically, starting from the top left, move down at about a 45 degree angle, make a 90 degree turn (and go up to the top right.

It's just part of Braille screen in put. I just started using it recently and I found quite a few posts of this nature on here, and some tips for how to write a full cell. I'm still playing with it with varying degrees of success. For now, what's working for me is to type dots 4 5 6, then quickly lift my fingers and type in dots 1 2 3. I've tried other dot combinations and my hands don't like them, but you might find something that works.
