I hope I'm 'in the right place' here :-) ...
Last December, I got an iPhone 4s, and, after the Firmware version was upgraded, I could pair my SuperVario2 40 braille display with it. That was great, but since the braille display is rather big, I couldn't 'carry it around' easily. So I ended up not using it much with the iPhone.
A few days ago, I got the Refresherbraille 18, and I like everything about it. IPhone 4s and Refresherbraille 18 seems like a good combination :-) . It's 'so cool' :-) .
Since I haven't had it long, and some of the things I've noticed may be my fault :-) , I'll just ask this for now.
I've searched the forum, but haven't found anything about this. I wonder why, since it seems HUGELY important to me.
When you pair a bluetooth keyboard with an iPhone, and the iPhone screen is locked, you can 'wake it up' by pressing any of the cursor keys (and perhaps other keys too, I'm not sure). But with the braille displays I've got, this doesn't work. I mean, one cannot press some key (or combination of keys) so that the iPhone 'wakes up' from its standby mode, but one has to press the Home button on the iPhone. I can understand why this shouldn't work with the SuperVario2 40 display, since one is not very mobile with this rather big display anyway. But I still can hardly believe :-) that there's no command to 'wake' the iPhone 'up' from its standby mode on the Refresherbraille. Or am I wrong? I'd hope so :-) . After all, according to the manual, one is supposed to be able to use only the Refresherbraille and 'leave' one's 'iPhone in' one's 'pocket'. But you obviously can't really do that if you have to reach for the iPhone to press the Home button so you can unlock the screen with the Refresherbraille. Or is there some command, and it's just that I haven't found it :-) ? That's also possible :-) .
But if not, I do hope something can be done about it! Of course, it's also possible that Apple cannot fix this, and it's all 'the fault' of Refresherbraille.
If anyone has some 'strategic advice' or tips on what one can do so that one doesn't have to reach for the iPhone to press the Home button (maybe never lock the screen or something), I'd be grateful if they could share their 'strategy' :-) !
Apologies for any typos or errors. Clearly, I'm not a native speaker of English :-) .
Thanks for any advice!
