Link to issue number:
None, reported by users on one of the Polish mailing lists and subsequently confirmed by Polish distributor of HIMS displays.
Summary of the issue:
Currently for HIMS braille displays F3 key is assigned to the braille points 1248. For computer braille tables however (at least for the Polish one) dots 1248 should enter number 6. For users it is impossible to write "6" from the braille keyboard in computer braille on HIMS displays.
Description of how this pull request fixes the issue:
F3 key has been remapped to Space+148. If we assume that Space+point 8 is responsible for invoking F keys this mapping is logical since dots 14 represents number 3.
TBD - I'll send the build to the distributor I don't have display to test.
