On first inspection this looks like a duplicate of #12606, however the "VID" (vender ID) is different VID_0483 vs VID_0904 in #12606 vs #12607 respectively.

The only information given at the top of #12606 is:

Want to insert our new Braille line "Vario 4" 6301 the lenght will be communicate after connection is esthablished. Hope this works with BT too.

Since these two PR's are so similar, I'm going to close #12606.
@Tobias-Team-Visiobraille we'll need more information and confirmation of testing results before we can include this change.

the Alias VisioBraille should be used is that possible?

Is this something that is also blocking the request from being merged?

Hello Sean, is there any possibility to include the Vario 4 device support into Update 2021.2 instead of 2021.3?
Thanks Tobias

Hello Sean,
this is Dirk from the VisioBraille Team. Since Tobias left the company its my job to organize the integration of the Braille displays into the screenreaders. I'm no software guy at all and I don't know how to manage this. Can you pleas help me?

What do I have to do for the integration of the Vario464 and the Vario480?

Many thanks in advance for helping me.
