Software patch to the Braille Sense 8.2 firmware that restores access to YouTube, Facebook and Google talk.

While Facebook and google Talk should have the same general operation, there are currently some limitations to YouTube. Namely, you can currently do only a general search. The categories such as “most Viewed”, etc, are not currently accessible, thus they have been removed from the application at present. We will work to restore these functions for the next major Braille Sense upgrade.

WARNING!! After upgrading the notetaker firmware, all system settings are restored to their defaults. If you have made changes to the system settings, you may wish to back them up before upgrading, so you can restore them after the upgrade is complete. Please use the “Backup/Restore” option in the “Utilities” menu to back up your option settings. Note: this backup does not back up your data, only your settings. We also strongly advise backing up your files.

Though the upgrade itself should not destroy data on the internal flashdisk, users should also consider backing up their files in case unexpected problems arise during the upgrade process. Please use the File Manager to back up your data to another device such as an SD card or USB flash drive.

Upgrading using the Online Method:

To upgrade using the online method, follow the steps below.

  1. 1. Connect your notetaker to AC power, and ensure you have an active internet connection.
  2. 2. From the main “Program” menu, press “u” to open the “Utilities” menu.
  3. 3. Press “u” again for “Upgrade Firmware”.
  4. 4. When prompted, “Upgrade Online?”, press “Enter”.
  5. 5. The notetaker checks for new firmware. If it finds it, you are prompted, “Are you sure you want to upgrade?” The default is “yes”.
  6. 6. Press “Enter” to initiate the download and upgrade process.
  7. 7. When the files are downloaded, the upgrade process begins. While the unit is upgrading, progress is displayed on the Braille display in the form of a percentage and progress beeps are heard. Please do not press buttons or power off the unit during the upgrade process as this may result in an incomplete installation.
  8. 8. When the upgrade is complete, the unit reboots and places you in the main “Program” menu. Press “Space-v” (FN-v) to verify your notetaker is running firmware version 8.2 build 06/16.
