When I read .brf files with my iPod touch and Braille display, I convert the brf into html format files, and transfer them to the Filer app with iTunes. In this way, I can navigate line by line with left/right swipe and page by page with up/down swipe. You can also use a 3-finger tap to search for a word if you know which character represents which dot; for example j is dots 2-4-5 and 0 is dots 3-5-6 and such. You can download the script I wrote at: The script I made is for Windows, but it's possible to make the same kind of scripts with Perl or Apple Script that runs on Mac OS.
