In this demo I take you through setting up and using a Braille display via VoiceOver on the Apple TV.

Along the way, I make a number of suggestions on how some things could be improved.

This is a great app for teaching sighted or people who are blind UEB using an iPad.

For VoiceOver users, a Bluetooth keyboard is required.

In this demo I show you how to activate Voice Dictation from the Bluetooth Keyboard using the VoiceOver command VO+Dash (-) or on the Braille display input keyboard Space+dots 156: i.e. the VoiceOver two finger magic double tap.

The trick as I explain/demo is to make sure the on-screen keyboard is visible: with the Bluetooth keyboard just press the Eject key (top right of the keyboard) and on the Braille display input keyboard Space+dots 146.
If the keyboard is not on the screen, you'll just start/stop music playing for example.
With using the Braille display input keyboard, you can set the on-screen keyboard to be visible in Settings, General, Accessibility, VoiceOver, Braille, on-screen keyboard.
Not currently able to be activated on the iPad pro smart keyboard.
