If I understand you well, your app allows us to read BRF files using our iOS compatible device? That sounds great indeed, as many online libraries for blind are delivering their content also in BRF format. Do you plan to support other languages in addition to English? I'm French.

Thanks for your interesting project.

In the US, we have an app which allows you to read brf files with a braille display, but you must be a member of the National library Services for the Blind to use this app. Does this app allow you to open brf files to also read with a braille display? If not, can this be added as a feature? Many thanks for posting this to the forums!

Hello, Sof

Thank you for warm words to Voice Braille Reader.
We just have launched Voice Braille Reader and have to let engineers have little break before developing whole new language. We wish to develop but all depends on demands of current Voice Braille Reader.
Hoping you to enjoy English books with Voice Braille Reader for now and announce French version in sooner.

Au revoir

Hello, Mr. Scott Davert,
Thank you for asking. Main feature of Voice Braille Reader is to translate Braille files into voice-recite
and iOS displaying by alphabetical words for lower vision users.
It works single iOS device alone. There is situation I personally am assuming of;
A person who want to continue reading Braille file with Braille Display,
but it is too late for stay up. He/She can keep follow the rest of Braille file contents
using Voice Braille Reader while laying down bed until doze.
Launch version of Voice Braille Reader does not work with Braille Display.
Attachment with it would be possible upon user's demands and further developments.
I hope this would clarify your question. Excuse us if we are not suitable for posting in this forum.
