Braille commands for Firefox for Android?

Posted

Hi all. I'm posting here today because I need using Firefox on an Android device running 8.1 or Oreo as it is also known. I want to know if there are any commands for using Braille on this device with FireFox. My device is not your traditional Android device. It is a tablet called the BrailleNote Touch Plus from Humanware, who make products for those with low or no vision, so it does not have a standard computer keyboard, only the Braille keyboard. Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

Hello again. I wanted to give an update. I am able to navigate by link by pressing the letter L, or dots 1, 2, 3, and I can also navigate by heading by pressing the letter H, or dots 1, 2, 5, on the braille keyboard. However, pressing the letter E, dots 1 and 5, does not seem to do anything, even though pressing E on a traditional keyboard is supposed to take you to the next editable field. This doesn't make sense to me, since the other commands work, including C for combo box. I hopes that this helps anyone who might attempt to provide their assistance. Thank you so much.

Hi Hilary

I have done some research and it has been suggusted that you install the Google Brailleback application which is availble from the Google Play Store. This will interface with a supported braille device to connect it to your Android device.

You can download this application from this link (or search for Brailleback in the Google Play Store):

I hope that this helps.
