When connecting a smart beetle display from hims, I get the following issues:

  1. Many keys on the display do not work: the two scrolling keys don't work and the function keys for control, windows, alt and home don't work either. The braille input keyboard does work though.
  2. When the display is disconected and reconnected, nvda doesn't automatically use the display again. I have to go into the braille settings dialog and press ok for it to work.

Thanks for reporting. I'm working on this in #6063 and will probably send in a pull request before next friday. I'd really appreciate your testing whenever it is ready. I"m afraid your second point is hard to fix though.

I think we can discuss this issue and related ones in #6063.

Hi @roelvdwal,
You can assign keyboard modifiers to the function keys on the Smart Beetle by manually editing gestures.ini. Here is my gestures.ini, where I've assigned some keys to Control, Windows, Alt and (in my case) Shift:

[globalCommands.GlobalCommands]
kb:alt = br(hims):advance3
kb:shift = br(hims):advance2
kb:control = br(hims):advance1
kb:windows = br(hims):advance4

@nvaccessAuto nvaccessAuto added this to the 2018.1 milestone Dec 8, 2017

Looks like I regressed this again as part of #7865. Reopening.
