last night I used braille screen input to right a long text for the first time, and I was quite pleased with how it went, I found it easier to use 6 dot rather than contracted braille because when I tried to use contracted often I didn't get results that I wanted,
also in contracted mode when you enter a punctuation sign at the end of a word like a period you get no feedback, but in 6 dot mode you do.
also I found the character buy character feedback reassuring in 6 dot mode.
I found one interesting thing which I didn't know before this is that you don't have to place all your fingers on the screen at once to form a sign you can rapidly place them down one buy one and build up the character you want to form.
so for example when I want the sh sign I start buy placing dot 4 on the screen, then dot 6 and finally dot 1, while leaving the others in place.
Braille certainly isn't as good as fleksy when it first started out but 6 dot is fairly acceptable to use for typing.
anyway on to my question I now have, does anyone know how to write a pound sign using braille screen input? I am on the UK braille system, and in the UK to do a pound sign you do dots 1, 2 and 3 then no space, a number sign and then write your number.
so I wanted to write the figure £80, but when I tried this I got the letter l, followed buy the number 80.
