Active Braille supported by Kindle FireWednesday, 15. May 2019, 12:10
In cooperation with the manufacturer Amazon, we have now built Braille support for the Active Braille in every Kindle Fire starting with the 8th generation. To benefit of the Braille support, the current software version 220.127.116.11 is needed.
To update your Kindle Fire, simply select the item System Updates at Settings / Device Options and execute the action "Check Now".
To connect the ActiveBraille via Bluetooth, please, select in settings the first menu item "Wireless & Bluetooth" where you can activate Bluetooth. If you select "Pair a Bluetooth Device" the Active Braille will be recognized. Confirm pairing with Y on the Active Braille and select "Pair" on the Kindle Fire. Now the Bluetooth connection is established.
Next, to select the Active Braille and start the Braille output for VoiceView, select the item Braille display at Setting / Acessibility / VoiceView to select the. Now the Braille output for VoiceView is started. As with iOS, you can navigate Chord 1 and Chord 4 and make a selection with Cursor rooting. We recommend activating the VoiceView Shortcut in the setting area of VoiceView. So you can comfortably start and stop VoiceView by pressing the on / off button three times.
Amazon is in the process of integrating the connection of our entire family of Braille displays.
