NVDA and BRLTTY version compatibility

Patrick ZAJDA-2
Hello,

I use an Alva Satellite pro on Windows 7 64-bits.
So the only solution I have is to use it with BRLTTY.

I tried to install the last version without success.
The last 4.X version (4.5-1 rev 5477) works.
I haven't tested with another 5.X release yet.

Is NVDA not compatible with BRLTTY 5.X ?
I know a 4.X version is specified on the readme, but does someone know
if it is possible to run NVDA with the last BRLTTY?

Thanks and best regards,

Re: NVDA and BRLTTY version compatibility

Hi Patrick,

On our User Guide we have:

"BRLTTY is a separate program which can be used to support many more braille displays. In order to use this, you need to install BRLTTY for Windows. You should download and install the latest installer package, which will be named, for example, brltty-win-4.2-2.exe."

I haven't tested with BRLTTY 5.x yet but my understanding is that mention of version 4.2.2 is simply an example of the naming convention used because the link points to a directory listing of files.  It might be worth removing that if it causes confusion.  In the line before it does say to download and install the latest installer package (which, looking at that link, actually isn't obvious).

Regards

Quentin.

Re: NVDA and BRLTTY version compatibility

James Teh
While it's true that the version number was more an example, it's possible that NVDA indeed doesn't work with BRLTTY 5. It may be that we need to upgrade our copy of the BRLAPI library.

Patrick, please do test with another version of BRLTTY 5, just to double check. If that doesn't work, please file an issue and we'll look into it when we can.

Thanks.

Jamie
