That is very unusual.

Over what time period has this been?

It sounds like one of the very early units.

My orbit has had to be fixed at least four times:

Missing dots.

Bad motor.

Dots staying up even when machine is off.

Inability to turn machine on.

Probably have spent more fixing it than it cost in the first place!

Ali,

Orbit Research will be releasing a 40 cell display very soon. Their 20 cell is quite good. The 40 will cost about $1400.

Freedom Scientific sells their Focus 40 5th jeneration display for around $2800.

Humanware and The American Printing House for the blind have released their Mantis 40 cell display that has a TWERTY Keyboard instead of a braille keyboard for around $2500.

HIMS has the QBraille 40 that I believe is about $3200.

I hope that helps you get started.

Hi everyone,

 

I am new to this group, and I hope that my questions is appropriate to be addressed in here.

 

I was wondering if someone could advise me with regards to where I could purchase a portable wireless braille display (40 cells)?

 

I am a Jaws user; however, I love to engage in reading in braille. Although I like when Jaws would read to me a long piece of text, I still wish to also remained active with my braille reading skills. As braille books takes a lot of space, braille displays are just perfect when reading electronic text in braille.

 

I would be very grateful if someone could help me with this query.

 

With the best of wishes,

 

Ali
