Reading braille books without a braille device on the iPad

Braille on Apple Products

Hello! I have a quick question. But first, I want to thank everybody that’s been helping me over the last few days get voice dream reader set up the way that I wanted, and helping me learn how to use it! I’m still learning, and I might have more questions about that as I go. My question today though is, recently the braille device that I used to read books recently became inoperable. I should mention that the device was not hooked up to the iPad. My question is, is there a way for me to read VRF books and magazines on the iPad without a display? I ask, because right now I don’t have access to that. That braille device was the only device that I had. If there is a way to do it, could you walk me through how? Well I have to get a cloud storage account? And if so, which one would work for this best? It would mostly be books and magazines from Bard, and book share that I would be doing this with. Any help you can give me is greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!

I'm not sure of any way to do this without converting the BRF file in some kind of braille translation software first. With bookshare books, I think it would be easier to download them again in another format that will work on the iPad. BRF files from BARD will be harder to access.
