A friend just reminded me today that #braille watches for the #blind inspired by the soviet braille watch tradition are still being produced nowadays. I have found an eshop with world wide shipping meranom.com/en/vostok/vostok-t…
Also there is a nice article on the history of these watches: mroatman.wixsite.com/watches-o…


In-Process is out, with all the details on NVDA 2024.2 Beta 3, Mick and Gerald's interview on Eyes On Success, a big walkthrough of the new "Sound Split" feature (if you've ever wanted to have NVDA in one ear and your apps or VOIP in the other, you won't want to miss this!), and the New braille setting: “Display speech output”.

Check it all out here: nvaccess.org/post/in-process-3…

@dalereardon @DavidGoldfield Oh yes I do as well a special area for registration codes definitely. And I also save account numbers offline in #Braille too in case of emergency.


This is a bit technical, but the following new Google-produced video is really interesting if you want more details about TalkBack 15, including better Braille support.

Does anyone with an iPad or iPhone and a braille display have that issue where app library keeps on opening? I turned it off, but the search field keeps popping up every time.I don't know what to do honestly, it takes over my apps, I can't read. Please, some help? #apple #accessibility #braille


The European Blind Union's survey of Braille display users has reported its findings. Please note that I am not associated with the survey; I'm merely forwarding the link.livingbraille.eu/results-of-th…

Very impressed with the new Split #Braille Feature in #JAWS. Being able to read Teams chat with half my display whilst typing someplace else is tremendous. They seem to have well thought out the different modes and views. Shame about the cells wasted with the split and lack of customisability of the viewport widths. If I won the lottery I'd throw a few hundred k at #NVDASR for comparable #BrailleDisplay development


Not a huge sample size, but the results are in!

If you use #Matrix, drop an #AltText comment below your images and screencasts for #ScreenReader, #Braille and other #Accessibility tools until we get support in the spec:

Are you a #ScreenReader and/or #Braille user on #Matrix?

Should we be adding messages as captions until #AltText is supported?

Oh, this is really cool. The National Library Service is now making indefinite loans of print-on-demand braille books! Up to 5 per month per person.

Then, Braille heard about a French army officer who had devised a system of written communication of raised dots and dashes for nighttime battles. He borrowed the idea of the dots, and set about creating an alphabet that could be read by touch. He decided that each letter would be represented by a different arrangement of six dots packed close enough that each letter could be read by a single fingertip. He presented his work to his peers for the first time in 1824.

Are you at #37c3 and are you using #accessibility technologies such as #screenreader , #braille displays or similar? We are in the process of making #MapComplete more accessible and want to user test this. Please get in touch!


The European Blind Union is conducting a survey of braille display users, preparatory to discussions with product manufacturers. The survey's organizers are seeking respondents both within and outside the E.U.

The “industry standard” modules used in digital braille displays are custom piezoelectric devices, costing around $100 per “letter,” making such displays impractically expensive for most applications.

I just learned about this hackaday prize winner, who has designed digital, refreshable #braille modules that cost less than $1 each, using teeny-tiny magnets and 3D printed parts.
