Apex as a Braille Display

Did you know that you can run a screen reader (such as JAWS, Window-Eyes, or HAL on your Windows computer or VoiceOver on your Mac) using your Apex as its Braille display? You can also read and type information in Braille to your iPhone or to other Mobile phones.

Apex offers flexible connectivity options. You can connect your Apex through the USB client port. It also allows you to enjoy the freedom of wireless Bluetooth connectivity.

The Terminal Tool installation package includes the Apex USB driver and the JAWS BrailleNote driver.

If you have a BrailleNote mPower or a BrailleNote PK, or if you want to use your Apex with Bluetooth or with the USB serial adapter, the Apex USB driver is not required to use your device as a Braille terminal. Simply install the JAWS BrailleNote driver as described below if you are using JAWS.

The USB driver is required if you plan to use your Apex as a Braille terminal with JAWS or Window-Eyes. It is also necessary for use with KeyView or KeySync through the USB client port.

Both drivers can be installed with Windows XP, Windows Vista (32 and 64 bits), Windows 7 (32 and 64 bits), Windows 8 (32 and 64 bits) and Windows 10 (32 and 64 bits) operating systems.
