Bluetooth Pairing Issue - does it really require sighted assistance?

macOS & Mac Apps

Hi all,
I have a bluetooth numpad that I wanted to pair with my MacBook Pro. I went through everything except entering the 8 digit code, the Mac didn't give me enough time before the code went away. I have a braille display and was trying to read the code on that. Can anybody pair things without having to be super fast? I can get sighted help, but that's just annoying.

I can successfully pair stuff in about 15 seconds. All I do is memmorise the coded and not relyon braille. I woudl just rely on the speach to do it and jut memorise it. You won't need to put it in to yoru long term just yoru working memmory.

Take care.

I must have done something wrong and dismissed the message by mistake or something because it worked today. I can't hear well enough to understand the speech reading the code I mean I can hear it, but I might hear some of the numbers wrong so braille is more reliable for me but I was able to read the code this time so it's all good!

Ah cool cool. Yeah bt stuff can be finiky at times. I also have mild hearing los but have managed to do ear training stuff to keep what I have and try and improve it back to at least 17 instead of the 15k I'm at now.

Again glad you got it working.
