Hello: I'd like to give some thoughts on Braille screen input for IOS8.
firstly, I'd like to commend Apple on a wonder job for making this a global way of typing for us.
I personally wasn't ever able to get any of the other braille input applications for IOS to function good for me.
I sat down last night and told myself that sense fleksy isn't working well currently,, I need a much faster way to input text reliably.
I decided to really sit down and check out this new
braille input method..
Now for my thoughts on it.
I really like it!
I honestly can say i didn't expect much from it but was pleasantly surprised to find that it was pretty useful both using 6-dot or uncontracted braille, and grade 2 braille. or contracted braille. one problem I see is that it seems to be as the old portrait and landscape modes used to switch before we had the ability to lock the orientation, seems to switch rather easily, so I think it would be nice to have a setting to lock it in a piticular mode.
Over all, I do like its ease of use however and it seems to be pretty responsive accept for it not telling you what character your typing when using contracted braille.
Hats off to apple for putting this into a already useful IOS update!
