I like to write. I’m not a published author but I write a lot of stories and fanfiction for fun as well as journaling. The first time I wrote with IOS was with the Smart Keyboard with iPad Pro. That along with Scrivener was **awesome.**
Then I had a problem that a lot of people had and my keyboard simply didn’t work after about a year. I don’t know if **I** broke it or what happened. Then I started using braille screen input which worked fine although I preferred typing on a physical keyboard rather then a touchscreen.
Then I was gifted a braille display for my birthday, a Brailliant BI 14 to be exact. It was better then. The touchscreen in some respects, but worse in others. The keys have a weird squishy feel, and it took me longer then I’d like to admit to figure out how the cursor touch things worked. Those are all specific complaints about the display I used, there are probably better ones out there.
I don’t think I’ll be looking into getting another one though, because this Christmas I was gifted a new iPad (my old one had an accident which I’m still embarrassed about) along with a messenger folio keyboard case. And in my personal opinion, it is a lot better than the display. I can just press one button and be ready to type, unlike the display which took forever to connect. Sometimes it would, and sometimes I’d have to connect it in the settings. Couldn’t simply do it in the Bluetooth settings, oh no I had to go all the way to the braille settings under voiceover.
I’d like to know what you guys think. do you like using a braille display or do you prefer a standard Bluetooth keyboard like me?
