By Dominic, 17 June, 2023 Forum App Development and Programming How can I learn this on iPhone it’s harder than like I can use a braille display and a Perkins but using braille screen input on iPhone is difficult how can I do this easy Options Log in or register to post comments Comments Practice it The old adage rings true. Practice makes perfect. Plus you are touching a flat surface thereby confusing your muscle memory even more. Just keep at it. My advice Hello, I also use BSI and one of the things that helped me much is dot calibration. You basically touch the screen with the pointer, middle finger and ring finger of your right hand and then quickly do the same with the same fingers on the left hand. VoiceOver will announce "Dot positions callibrated." Then, the device will remember where you want the dots to be and you can write safely, because it announces you what dots you press. Good luck! :) Yeah I might just go back to using dictation browser displays an And there we go another dictation error Luckily I have my Braille sense around here, I might just hook it up to my galaxy log into that site log into the site on my Galaxy post from there and dictation on this iPhone is absolutely treacherous And there we go again another error, it honestly saddens me because for the first couple of days of iOS 17 development I really thought dictation had massively improved but now it’s just gone back to its old ways and iOS 16. Sad You're giving up too easily Practise BSI. It is really very good indeed. One thing that might benefit you is to use it in screen away mode. I do that with the iPhone and it's very helpful. I've got tabletop mode to work well on iPad but scrreen away is best for iPhone, I have found. Dot Calibration is also very important as has already been suggested. You can also explore the screen to see where the dots are by holding down one finger until you hear a sound which indicates you're in explorer mode. So, just to recap, hold the phone away from you in landscape orientation, so the screen is facing away from you, I mean. Then you should be able to fit two rows of three fingers parellel to one another going vertically down the landscape oriented screen. 21-2-3 from top to bottom on the left, 4-5-6 from top to bottom on the right. Give it a shot. then give it another shot. then another. Don't give up just because you're struggling at the moment. Use the guide to braille screen input post There is a post called "A guide to braille screen input." If you have the ability, read this on a separate device, and play with the phone as you read about the concepts. Also the comments are helpful in this post because you'll find many sulutions to problems beginners with BSI encounter. Once that's been done, practice it everywhere. When I decided to learn, I basically used it in every edit box I encountered. You really need to make yourself do it over and over. It took me a few months to get up a good speed, but I'm happy with it now. This entire comment has been written with BSI. Agree with everyone else… Agree with everyone else here. I have my phone locked to screen away for BSI. Every once in a while I accidentally unlock it and it causes me issues, or sometimes the dot positions will get messed up and I have to recalibrate them. To lock your phone orientation for BSI, tilt your phone until it tells you what you want -- screen away or table top -- and then 3 finger swipe down. Braille Screen Input is good… Braille Screen Input is good until you either forget a symbol or run into an app where it doesn't work. On occasion, I've encountered apps where I need to use the keyboard, but when switching to BSI, it simply won't work. In such cases, I have to either dictate or type into notes and then paste it in. Keep at it, it'll be worth it! The guide to using Braille screen input is really good. If you do a search for Braille screen input, you'll find lots of posts and comments that might be helpful. It took me a while to get it, but now that I have I don't use anything else unless for some reason some app doesn't accept BSI. Best option I've been using BSI for over a year now and it's a game changer for me as I use it in tabletop mode. I gave up easily on this keyboard a few years ago because I didn't devote enough time to it. With dictation being so poor and unreliable, I realised that BSI is my only option. This isn't related to BSI but have you tried typing? This page might help you: https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT204783 I prefer typing to braille but either way as others have said, practice practice and practice again. I think I learnt it quite easy because I learnt to touch type in school.
