Re: Braille Window 80 and JFW

Dave Durber

Hello Frank:

I am using a BrailleWindow 40 character braille display with JAWS 14 and I have been using it with all the versions of JAWS since 5.0 with no problems.

The Biostar motherboard I have in my computer, did not come with physical serial or parallel connectors. I had to get an expantion plate, with a serial and parallel port with connectors that connected to headers on the motherboard.

I have not tried connecting the Braille Window display, using a USB to serial connector or, USB to parallel connector. Maybe, someone else has done that and can suggest which brand to use.

Hi all, does anyone know if it is possible to use an old Braille Window 80 braille display with modern version of JFW. I have Googled this and all the info I can find is way out of date.
