    BrailleBack is an Accessibility Service that helps blind users make use of braille devices. It works together with the TalkBack app to give a combined braille and speech experience. This app lets you connect a supported refreshable braille display to your device via Bluetooth. Screen content will be presented on the braille display and you can navigate and interact with your device using the keys on the display. It is possible to input text using the braille keyboard. Devices supported in this version: • APH Refreshabraille • Baum VarioConnect • Esys EuroBraille • Freedom Scientific Focus Blue (14 and 40 cell models) • HandyTech (Basic Braille, Active Braille, Braille Star, Braille Wave, Braillino, Easy Braille) • Harpo (Braillepen 12, Braillepen 12 Touch) • HIMS (BrailleSense, Braille EDGE) • Humanware Brailliant (1st generation and BI models) • Optelec Alva (BC640, BC680), Easylink 12 touch • Papenmeier Braillex Trio • Seika (notetaker and 40 cell display) This app is not active by default. Steps to activate this app: • Go to Settings • Select Accessibility • Select BrailleBack, and turn on the switch • Go back to Settings • Select Bluetooth • If your Bluetooth braille display is not listed, make sure the display is in pairing mode and select Search For Devices • Select the name of your braille display to make sure that it is paired For further instructions, press the space bar and dots 1, 2 and 3 on the display at the same time. If your display doesnt have braille input keys, choose Keyboard help in BrailleBack settings.

    Every time I install this plugin the app resets. Please fix this. And never finds my Braille device. I'm working with a humanware braillenote Apex 32 cell. Doesn't ever find it and never pairs when I go through Bluetooth. This app hasn't been updated in 2 years?! Get with the program!

    I used my Focus 14 refreshable braille blue with Android phone through BrailleBack on bluetooth. It is working well. So I hope for updating BrailleBack that I need to use Braille Display Device connecting USB cable with Android phone on BrailleBack without bluetooth. It is better. Both Blueetooth and USB must use on BrailleBack. There is available Mobilegear Micro USB Host OTG 3 port Hub Adapter cable with charge for all OTG enabled Android phone. I want new update on BrailleBack for both BT and USB. Thank you
