Hi, there is a book that I have been dying to read that is only available in BRF format. I can't find it on iBooks or Kindle or Bookshare or any other ebook format. It's either BRF or scan the thing myself with my phone as I don't have a proper scanning and reading tool for long projects. This book is huge. Is there anything at all available anywhere that will let me back translate this BRF file that doesn't involve spending a month's income? I've been looking everywhere. Any info would be most appreciated
If you have the BARD Mobile app, just do an open in to that with any brf document. It will appear under Braille Books when you do, and you can save your place and navigate like a BARD Braille book. No need for Dropbox jiggering; why is it that everyone thinks Dropbox is the only way to do things? Caveat though: this only works with a Braille display. I'm surprised apps like Voice Dream don't have the ability to backtranslate brf files to speech yet.
The Bard Mobile app requires files to be zipped in order to recognize them. Zip the BRF and then open it in BARD Mobile. It will appear in the list of Vraille books and may have an odd name. Arrange by latest end it will appear at the top of the list.
