The Focus 14 is a very portable display, about the size of a Braille Pen, but it sports 2 more cells than the Pen, along with a slightly higher price tag than the Braille Pen, but that won't be the case for long.
Instead of wizwheels, you have a rocker button located at each end of the display that you can press up to move up or down to move down.
Above these scrol buttons you have a button that allows you to control the type of element the scrol buttons move by such as paragraph, sentence, line, or display width. The keyboard is much quieter than the older model Focus Blue, and the keys feel more like those on a Braille Sense or Edge. A much more comfortable typing experience than previous models, in my opinion. For those who like the rocker bars on the front of the display, you'll be happy to know that both the 14 and the 40 have them. The price for the Focus 40 Blue is the same as the earlier generation, while the price of the 14 is $1295, The new 40 is already shipping, and according to one of the Freedom Scientific employees I spoke to, works with iOS 5.1.1. The 14 will ship later this month, and FS is taking preorders. It does not work with iOS 5, but the company says it works with 6. I was not able to verify either finding.
Both the 14 and 40 are a bit more compact than the earlier versions of these products. There are, however, no internal features such as a notetaking app, book reader, etc. However, for those who enjoy the Focus line of products, and the way in which they work seemlessly with JAWS, these new displays are worth considering. They appear to work as advertized, and the braille is more crisp than before.
Does the Focus 14 offer
I believe yes
Focus 14 Blue Review
Yes, the Focus does have cursor routign buttons. Regarding sleep mede, I never experienced a significant battery drain when I had mine.
how is this display, under ios 10
hi all how is using a focus 14 these days, now with ios 10 and the soon to be released, ios 11? can i customize the buttons, if i buy one? also, isn't 14 cells a bit limited, although, having that with me and leaving phone securely tucked away somewhere when traveling is appealing. how would i unlock the phone though with the focus?
also, does auto-advance work on this display in ios 10?
