Active Braille Firmware 4.5 available

Friday, 07. September 2018, 13:35

What's new?
SmartSwitching: The Active Braille automatically switches to the currently active data source, i.e. to one of the up to three Bluetooth connections which was last active or to the USB connection to the PC.
If no Bluetooth or USB connection is active, the Active Braille automatically switches to internal mode. If the Active Braille is connected to the iPhone via Bluetooth and it goes into the lock screen, it automatically switches to the internal mode. One is then back at the same internal location, e.g. in a note. The iPhone unlocks and boom, the Active Braille is reconnected.
The previous switching to the internal mode with Chord m and the screen reader mode with Cord p is in most cases no longer needed. With Chord 458, you can still switch quickly between connected devices.

New file system:
The new file system ensures that the entire storage space on the 16 GB SD card can be used. The previous file system could use internally formatted SD cards only up to 4 GB. The new file system also prevents file corruption in the simultaneous use of many files.

User friendly names per Bluetooth: When switching between devices, the device name now is displayed, e.g. Sigis iPhone.
