haven't heard anything about this, though I would like to if there's any
truth in it, since I've never used a braille display for that very
reason, that I felt their usefulness and convenience over speech would be
greatly reduced unless they were full page displays, with the ability to
display symbols, tool-bars etc, maybe with ability to press on bits
firmly for clicking on them etc. it would also be _incredibly fast for
the inputting to at least my brain, of hthe lay-out of screens and
interpreting what the program wants from you, even for things as simple
as titles of icons which are, say, a couple of short lines long all
related to that particular icon etc.
how scary would the cost of such a piece of hardwear be though?
