Actilino 3.1

https://ftp.helptech.de/StartStick/files/products/ALO/software/ALO_...

September 15th, 2020
Improvements in the firmware version 3.1:

  • Overall ATC sensitivity and responsiveness have been increased. For power readers with a particularly light touch of the Braille dots, the sensitivity has been considerably increased (previous level 7 corresponds to new level 4)
  • The ATC sensitivity level 7 no longer waits for automatic advance when reading texts, which means an increase in performance for exceptionally fast readers.
  • An error in the display of file timestamps was fixed.
  • Corrected percentage of battery capacity to more accurately reflect current capacity. In particular, 100% is always displayed when the battery is fully charged.
  • This setup includes the latest manuals for English, French, German and Spanish.

Connect Braille firmware 1.1

https://ftp.helptech.de/StartStick/files/products/CB4/software/CB4_...

December, 17th, 2019

This version has been developed with high priority to correct an error in displaying the charging state of the rechargeable batteries. This error occurs only if the Braille display had been switched into save mode. As the device briefly switches into save mode during an update, we noticed this problem immediately after updating the firmware to version 1.1.
After Save mode was active, the battery status will be displayed as empty regardless of the actual charge level. This results in the low battery alarm ringing already 2 hours into battery operation, although the battery could run for another 20 hours.
This bug is fixed with version 1.1.

Active Braille firmware 4.7

https://ftp.helptech.de/StartStick/files/products/AB4/software/AB4_...

September, 26th, 2019

This version has been developed with high priority to correct an error in displaying the charging state of the rechargeable batteries. This error occurs only if the Braille display had been switched into save mode. As the device briefly switches into save mode during an update, we noticed this problem immediately after updating the firmware to version 4.6.
After Save mode was active, the battery status will be displayed as empty regardless of the actual charge level. This results in the low battery alarm ringing already 2 hours into battery operation, although the battery could run for another 20 hours.
This bug is fixed with version 4.7.

In addition, we have implemented 3 new firmware enhancements, which are really great especially in combination with the TabliApp.
1. Displaying of reading position
The reading position on the Braille display, as determined by ATC, is displayed in real time on the TabliApp. This is helpful especially in the teaching situation, because a sighted person can observe which text passage is being read by the blind user at the moment.
2. Displaying of the marked text passages
If text passages on the Braille display are marked, represented by dots 7 + 8, the marking is now also transferred to the TabliApp and is now displayed as inverted text.
3. Typing text input in monitor mode
When TabliApp is connected, the Braille display switches to internal mode. If a text file is then opened in the editor, keypresses can be transferred from the TabliApp to the Braille display as text input. This so-called keyinject allows writing on the Active Braille with the onscreen keyboard of the smart phone.

By the way, with Active Braille Firmware 4.7 the reading position is already displayed in the monitor display (Ctrl + m) of the latest HTCom version 3.1.0.0 . However, HTCom needs to be the active application for displaying the reading position.
