Using a braillenote apex qt as a braille display

Braille on Apple Products
Hi all, I was wondering how I would use the BrailleNote apex qt as a braille display? I know how to connect it, but I don't know the keystrokes to interact with the ipod. Any and all help would work. Many thanks!

Once you get your QT Apex connected go back from the braille window on your IOS device. You'll need to find a button that says something like practice voiceover gestures. ONce in this screen you'll be able to see what keys and key combinations work in order for you to move around your IOS device with your Apex. I hope this helps.

Hello. I agree with the first commenter, but I'll add a bit to this. The only way to input text with the Apex is to use sdf and jkl as your braille dots on the keyboard. Where dot 1 is f, and dot 6 is l. Also, and I don't recall all of these commands, but the one I remember is to activate the home button, press the middle 2 thumb keys together. As input via braille devices go, this is probably the one with the least support. I hope this gets you started though.
