To set up the BraillePen 12 as a keyboard and display for Window-Eyes:

First of all you need to pair your BraillePen with your computer using the default Bluetooth connection set up. Remember to assign the lowest possible COM port number. Note down the number because you will need it later when configuring Window-Eyes.

Turn your BraillePen on and connect your newly added Bluetooth device.

Once your BraillePen has been paired with and connected to your computer follow these steps to configure your Window-Eyes:

  1. Run Window-Eyes on your computer.
  2. Open the WE Control Panel.
  3. In Help Menu find Show Advanced Options item and select it.
  4. You will now have access to all the Window-Eyes options.
  5. From the Settings List on the left hand side choose Devices. Press the Right Arrow key to expand it and arrow down to select Braille Displays. Tab to the main window where you will select your device under Displays. Arrow down or keep pressing b until you hear „BraillePen 12″.
  6. Then press Tab to jump to the list of ports and choose the COM port you assigned when pairing your BraillePen.
  7. Tab to Activate button and push the space bar to activate it. The BraillePen will beep confirming the connection.
  8. A dialog prompting you to confirm the changes will pop up.
  9. If you want to keep these changes, tab further to Save Settings button and press the spacebar.
  10. Finally, make sure you have selected the correct translation table selected. You can do it by going to Braille – Translation Tables.

Upgrading Window-Eyes

BraillePen 12 and BraillePen 12 Touch

Window-Eyes supports the cursor routing available in the BraillePen12 Touch. If your Window-Eyes does not have a new BP12 or BP12 Touch driver and braille.ini integrated into its file system, you need to do the following simple steps.

  1. Download WE4BP12T.zip file here and save it locally on your computer.
  2. Exit Window-Eyes.
  3. Unzip the content and copy webrloem104.dll to your Window-Eyes folder where wineyes.exe resides, for example C:\Program Files (x86)\GW Micro\Window-Eyes. When you are asked to replace the existing file, choose Copy and Replace.
  4. Open US-Braille folder and copy braille.ini file.
  5. Go to …\AppData\Roaming\GW Micro\Window-Eyes\users\default and replace the default braille.ini file.
