Merits of various portable braille displays
I love my focus 14.
It has withstood living with me for 3.5 years now.
It still works and is so easy to pair.
I love how small it is.
It just didn't come with a good case though so not good for banging around in a bag of hard objects.
I received my Braillliant 32 yesterday and it's great.
The space thing doesn't bother me much, as prefer qwerty keyboards if I have to type.
I also bought two BraillePen 12 Touch units on sale, and they came wt such great cases!
Too bad the Pen won't pair with my device; it's kinda impossible to use without pairing. I don't know why. It just won't connect.
I am waiting for Monday to contact the seller.
One of them not pairing is maybe a lemon, but both of them won't work.
I think it might be an Apple issue that I hope an update will fix.
Anyway, I love my Brailliant and Focus and will love the BraillePen once it works.
Btw, the new BraillePen 12 Touch does have cursor routing, but it's not a physical button. You move your finger above the braille and it routes when it senses your touch.
You may need to consider Braille Edge 40. It is portable, and it has the basic functionality of a braille note taker. Also the price is low if compared to other braille note takers/displays.
