This NVDA add-on allows braille to be entered via the PC keyboard. Currently, the following keyboard layouts are supported:

  • English QWERTY keyboard.
  • French (France).
  • German (Germany).
  • Italian (Italy).
  • Persian.
  • Portuguese (Portugal).
  • Spanish (Spain and Mexico).
  • Turkish.

How to configure

The add-on can be configured from its category in the NVDA's settings dialog, under NVDA's menu, Preferences submenu. A gesture for opening the add-on settings panel can be assigned from Input gestures dialog, configuration category.

Check the corresponding checkbox if you want to type using only one hand, or ensure it's not checked if you prefer to type using the standard mode (two hands).

Cum se utilizează

  1. Press NVDA+0 to enable braille input. This gesture can be changed from Input gestures dialog, Braille category.
  2. Type braille by pressing keys together on the PC keyboard as if it were a braille keyboard.

    • If you want to enter text using two hands, use the following keys if you work with a QWERTY English keyboard, or the keys located at the corresponding positions in other layouts:

      • f, d and s for dots 1, 2 and 3 respectively.
      • j, k and l for dots 4, 5 and 6 respectively.
      • Use the keys a and ; (semi-colon) for dots 7 and 8, respectively.
      • You can also use the keys on the row above; i.e. q, w, e, r, u, i, o and
    • If you want to type text using one hand, you can compose characters pressing keys simultaneously or in several keystrokes, adding the dots corresponding to the desired character. Press g or h to type the character when you have added all its dots. If you make a mistake building a character, you can clear the dots before typing it by pressing t or y. The keys used in QWERTY English keyboard are the following:

      • Left hand: f, d, s, r, e, w, a, q for dots 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8.
      • Right hand: j, k, l, u, i, o, ; (semicolon), p for dots 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8.
  3. You can press most other keys as normal, including space, backspace, enter and function keys. Take care about not pressing alt+shift, since changing the keyboard layout may affect the entered dots.

  4. Press NVDA+0 to disable braille input.

Note importante!

This add-on uses NVDA's in-built braille input support. Therefore, the input table used is that specified in NVDA's Braille Settings dialog.

Unele tastaturi, sau tastaturile particulare ale laptopului, nu suportă acest mod. Când se întâmplă asta, unele taste sunt pur și simplu ignorate. Din păcate, nu este posibil nimic de făcut ca să se rezolve asta, deoarece tastele nu sunt niciodată primite de către NVDA și Windows. În unele cazuri, folosing primul rând de tase cu ambele mâini poate ajuta, deoarece tastatura ta poate permite aceste taste.
