The Best of Both Worlds: Brailliant + iDevices = A Winning Combination
Connect your iPhone to a HumanWare Brailliant display and take advantage of the sleek design, high-quality braille cells, and ergonomic keyboard and thumb keys that have been adored by BrailleNote Apex users. Control your iPhone with the braille input keys, read messages, emails, or iBooks, and type responses or documents in contracted or uncontracted braille, all without the touchscreen of the iOS device.
Once the two tools are paired, the Brailliant can be used to produce braille output, along with providing control over the iPhone without using the touch screen. Users have the capability to:
- Navigate applications, home screens, and other elements
- Enter text into any editable applications such as text messages, emails, note files, etc, using the
- Brailliant’s ergonomic braille input keys. Text can be entered in contracted or uncontracted braille.
- Read in braille from all accessible applications, including reading books from the iBooks application.
- In short, anything that could be accomplished with VoiceOver via the touch screen can be accomplished using the Brailliant’s input keyboard
To connect the Braillliant to the iOS device, the pairing has to be initialized from the iPhone or iPad, just as with any other keyboard or Bluetooth device.
The Brailliant displays support connection through a USB port or through Bluetooth, a wireless protocol that provides connectivity within a range of 10 to 100 meters. The Brailliant also includes a proprietary adapter cable that allows for connection to a serial port.
Whether you are using a PC, a Mac, or a mobile device, the Brailliant braille display provides you an exceptional braille reading experience. Equipped with the thumb keys and ergonomic design that have been so popular in HumanWare’s BrailleNote line of devices over the years, the Brailliant offers you an effortless braille reading experience with virtually no learning curve.
Since getting my Brailliant 40, I have had access to braille outside of the blind school I attended. This meant that if I got my college textbooks electronically, I could still read them. Even between semesters and beyond, I could use the Brailliant with my iOS device and read books purchased using iBooks! This meant that I could still keep my braille reading skill up while still enjoying a book for the same cost as everyone else! This was not my first braille display, but it’s been my best! – John A., Ontario, Canada
