Does anyone use the Perkins keyboard on the Braille Edge 40 to input text in Pages on the Mac?
I've tried but it types things other than what I'm brailling. Thanks for any help.
I know this topic was posted several years ago, but I have had the same question about text input from the Braile Edge rather than from the on-screen or computer keyboards on the Mac and iPhone respectively.
I almost brught one, but I decided to pass because I felt like there were too many buttons for my taste. However, I am curious as to how easy it is to pair the Edge with an iphone or ipad and if you have to enter a pin code when doing so. Also, is there any lag when the display reconnects to an Ios device?
Does this product have a warrantee? My braille note just broke, and I am so tired of paying out-of-pocket to repair it.
Thanks a lot.
I'm on the market for a braille display and am considering the newest Brailliant because it seems stable! I had the opportunity to spend a significant amount of time with the Braille Edge and I've been impressed by its performance and stable connection, even in 2021. Perhaps this is because I haven't had the chance to test out the newer displays released in 2020 and was primarily relying on a 10-year-old Brailliant...
My question is, is the Braille Edge still relevant in 2021? Or since the price difference isn't that significant, should I just buy the newest and greatest?
I don't know that the Braille Edge is still being sold by HIMS, but yes, this is an excellent display which works really well. I've had one for a number of years and it is rock solid. I use it with a MacBook Pro and my iPhone and I couldn't be happier. I don't use the onboard features, like the notepad and other apps, but for connecting to external devices, you can't go wrong with this display.
Hope this helps.
Excellent. Thank you for your comment. I will seriously consider the Braille Edge if it's still being sold and the price is right. I'm like you - never used the onboard features either, and I really appreciate both the switch on the unit to toggle between pairing modes and the ability to choose terminal mode to display when I turn on the device.
