Braillenote Apex and Invoking keyboard commands of Command+letters?

Forum
Braille on Apple Products

Using a BrailleNote Apex with an iPhone 5S as a Braille display and Braille keyboard, I wonder if an app (the Drafts app over at

for example) some apps have shortcut commands (Command+l or Option+Command+i) how would I invoke these using the Braille keyboard on my Apex? Yes I tried the Space+i mode where you need to press for Alt Space+a+Dot7 (I think the Alt is the same as the Command key) but nothing happens! Thanks for info.

As far as I know, there aren't any direct Braille to keyboard mappings other than what are provided, i.e. there's no way to press command plus another key unless there's a Braille mapping provided. I only know of two exceptions: the Smart Beetle and the Alva BC640. However, this is possible with these two displays because they emulate a full Bluetooth keyboard in addition to their Braille input and, consequently, have the ability to use any keyboard key you want.
