Input text with BrailleBack

To input text with your braille keyboard, first enable the keyboard in your Android settings, under Language & input. If you try to use the keyboard before completing this step, you'll receive a prompt to change your settings.

To edit a text field:

  • If your device has routing keys, tap one of the routing keys on top of the field when it's visible on the braille display.
  • If your device doesn't have routing keys, focus and activate the text field.

You can then use routing or arrow keys to move in the text field.

When editing text, Brailleback switches to 8-dot braille.
