Android 15 Features New Support For Braille Displays


In this interview, hosts Steven Scott and Shaun Preece bring in an expert, Matthew Horspool from the Braillists Foundation, to discuss the breaking news about Braille and Android.

The main topic of the discussion is the announcement of Android 15, beta 1, which includes HID support for Braille displays via Bluetooth. The hosts and the expert breakdown the current state of play with Android and Braille, explaining that the new HID support essentially allows for any Braille display to work with any device as long as both devices support HID.

They delve into the history of the issue, including the tug of war between HumanWare and Google, who had differing approaches to supporting Braille displays.
