I currently own a Perkins/Seika Mini braille display, and it’s the first-ever braille display I’ve owned and connected with my iPhone. I’m having a problem with the Mini, and was wondering if it was a bug iOS has with displays, or if it’s my actual device.
The issue I’m having is that every now and then, I’ll pan the display to see what else is on the line as the Mini only has 16 cells. Only, it won’t work. I’ll have to hit the backward panning button and then the forward-panning button from once to a few times to even get to see the rest of the line. I am currently looking into buying the VarioUltra 20, but if buying this would not fix my current issue, I’d like to know. So…anyone using displays with iPhones, do you have this problem? Does your display ever freeze in this way? Or is the Perkins Mini just not the best at Bluetooth connectivity?
In addition to this, I have another question. Have any of you had to go into VoiceOver settings, braille, and click on your already paired device to get it to work? I’ve had my Min for a year and a half, and occasionally I’ll turn bluetooth on on the Mini and the iPhone, and I still have to do this.
Thanks for any possible answers on these questions.
