Did you power cycle the braille display? If not, turn it off and then back on. Can you try a different USB cable? The latest NVDA has its own drivers, as I recall, so I’m wondering about the actual connection to the display. Also, trying a different USB port would be a good idea, and not using a USB hub (if you have one) is also recommended.

 

If that doesn’t help, then communicating with your braille display vendor would be in order.

Okay:

First, I did reboot, and jaws still no display detected;

Next,

I tried to use nvda and even though the computer makes the connect noise when  I plug it in,

Nvda doesn’t see it either;

 

 

Please advise as you like.

Definitely reboot the system so that JAWS is restarted. If that doesn’t work, test whether NVDA can detect the display, just in case it’s a connection issue.

I did not see a remove option,

Just a combo box saying I can change the default display;

And even if I pick pm display,

And then hit ok,

It still doesn’t see it;

 

Please advise as you like.

Can you use the Synthesizer and Braille Manager in the Options menu to remove the display, then re-configure it again?

Hey guys:

 

Somehow,

Jaws says the active display is no display, but,

The default combo box says that pm display is default;

How do I reset the active display so it says pmdisplay and then sees it?

Right now, jaws thinks that there is no braille display;

 

 

Please advise as you like.
