To hide unused programs on the Braille Sense U2 MINI, press "Space" on each of the programs you wish to hide in the list. Press "Enter" to save your settings, or tab to "Confirm" and press "Enter". You must reset the Braille Sense U2 MINI using the "Reset" button on the back of the unit for these settings to take effect. When the Braille Sense U2 MINI reboots, the programs you chose to hide are no longer displayed.

To unhide the programs, return to the "Menu Manager" dialog, and press "Space" on the programs you wish to unhide, and press "Enter" to save the settings. Press "Reset" once again, and the programs reappear in the menus after the unit reboots.



3.6 Backup/Restore Personalized settings
"Backup/Restore Personalized settings" is a utility used to backup/restore the option settings for each program in the Braille Sense U2 MINI all at once. You can run this utility by pressing "k (dots 1-3)" from the "Settings" menu. You can also launch the “Backup/Restore Personalized Settings” dialog from anywhere on the unit by pressing “F3-K (dots-1-3)”.

The "backup/restore" dialog contains: the "program option check box list", a "Select all" button, a "Backup" button, a "Restore" button, and a "Cancel" button. You can move among the check boxes in the "program option check box list", by pressing "Space-1" or "Space-4". You can move among the controls in the dialog by pressing "tab (Space-4-5)" or "shift-tab (Space-1-2)".

The "program option check box list" contains "Options settings", "File manager options", "Word processor options", "Address manager options", "Schedule manager options", "Media player options", "Web browser options", "E-mail options", “DAISY Player options”, “Radio options”, "Bluetooth manager options", "Social Networking options", "Database manager options" and “BookShare Download options”.
In this list, move to the program options you want to backup or restore and check the item by pressing "Space". You can uncheck a checked item by pressing "Space" again. To select all of the program options in the list, press "Enter" on the "Select all" button.

After selecting all the options you want to backup or restore, press "Enter" on the "Backup" or "Restore" button, or press “Enter-b (dots-1-2)” to backup or “Enter-r (dots-1-2-3-5)” to restore. If you select the "Backup" button, you are prompted to select a path for storing the backup file. Navigate to the folder in which to store the backup files using normal file/folder navigation commands. Select the folder or drive in which to store the backup by pressing "Space", and press "Enter" to start the backup process.


Each of these options has its own backup file. This means that if you backup options for 5 programs, the utility generates 5 backup files.

If you select the "Restore" button, you are prompted for the path from which to restore backup files. Again, use normal file and folder navigation to select the folder containing your backup files. If you select a folder in which there is no backup, you receive a message indicating there is no backup option file. To restore your settings, select the folder containing the backup files by pressing "Space", then press "Enter" to initiate the restore process.

If you hard reset your Braille Sense U2 MINI, or its battery is fully discharged, the main option settings and settings for each program are initialized to the default values. If you have created a backup of your settings, you can restore the option settings after the hard reset.
3.7 Change device Name
The “Change device Name” function allows you to change the name of your unit. By default, the Braille Sense is named something like “Braille Sense U2035”. You may wish to give it a more personalized name in order to identify it more easily when pairing with another device or identifying it on a network. This is especially important when using “Sense Chat” as you’ll be pairing 2 Sense notetakers, and it is important to know which is which.

You can access the “Change device Name” dialog by navigating to the “Settings” menu, then to “Change Device Name”. You can also launch the “Change device Name” dialog from anywhere on the unit by pressing “Backspace-Enter-E (Dots-1-5)”.

The “Change device Name’ dialog consists of 3 controls: a “Device Name” edit box, a “Confirm” button, and a “Cancel” button. Use “Tab (F3)” and “Shift-tab (Space-F3)” to move among the controls.

To change your device name, type a new name in the edit box and press “Enter”. Or, after typing the new name, tab to “confirm” and press “Enter”. If you decide you do not wish to change your device name, tab to the “Cancel” button and press “Enter”, or press “Space-e (dots-1-5)” or “Space-z (dots-1-3-5-6)”.

Once you have changed your device name, it is necessary to reset the unit for the change to take effect. Reset the unit by pressing the small round button on the back. The next time you use another device to search for Bluetooth devices, or devices on your network, your Braille Sense should appear under your new name.

The unit announces, "Password settings have been initialized" and you are placed on the "Set Password" option.

3.9 Global Options

The "Global Options" on the Braille Sense U2 MINI is a large dialog box for controlling many preferences/settings. You can access "Global Options" by pressing "F1" to get to the main menu, and then navigating to the “Settings” menu and pressing “Enter”. Navigate to "Global Options" by pressing "Space-4" or "Space-1". Press "Enter" to open the "Global Options" dialog. You can also open "Global Options" from anywhere on the notetaker by pressing "Space-o (dots 1-3-5)".


You can navigate among the items in "Global Options" using "Space-1" and "Space-4" or using the scroll keys. You can also use shortcut keys to quickly move to specific items in the "Global Options" dialog. You can toggle an option on or off or cycle through the available values of a setting with the "spacebar" or "Backspace" keys.

Many of the Global Options also have global hotkeys allowing you to adjust these settings from anywhere on the unit. You can view the shortcut and hotkey for an option by placing your cursor on it and pressing “Space-3-6”.

To save the changes you've made to the "Global Options" settings, press "Enter" or tab to the "Confirm" button and press "Enter". When you press "Enter" to save the settings, the Braille Sense U2 MINI says, "Saved options," and you are returned to the place on the notetaker from which you entered the "Global Options". To cancel without saving changes, press the "F 4" key, "Space-e (dots 1-5)", or "Space-z (dots 1-3-5-6)". The Braille Sense U2 MINI announces, "Canceled saving options".
From the options list, you can also use "tab ("Space-4-5")" or "shift-tab ("Space-1-2")" to navigate to the "Confirm" and "Cancel" buttons. If you want to save your settings, press "Enter" on the "Confirm" button. If you do not want to save changes, press "Enter" on the "Cancel" button.
Before we go in to detail about each option, let's first go through a brief overview of what appears in the "Global Options" dialog.

3.9.1 Global Options Overview
The "Global Options" dialog contains various settings that can be changed in the Braille Sense U2 MINI. As stated above, you can open "Global Options" from anywhere on the unit by pressing "Space-o (dots 1-3-5)". The "Global Options" dialog contains five groups, making it easy to jump to a particular section in the very long list of settings present in the dialog.


  1. Braille settings (includes Braille display, Braille cursor, eight dot mode, view/input grade, Braille Code, Line Break and message display time)

  2. Voice settings (includes language, voice, punctuation level, keyboard echo, capitalization alert, numbers, abbreviations, voice volume, voice rate, voice pitch, Sub Voice Rate, Main Volume, and scroll voice)

  3. Display settings (includes Flip LCD display and LCD font size) Note: these settings only appear if the external USB LCD is connected.

  4. Print settings (includes printer port and print paper size)

  5. General settings (includes audio alerts, play power on/off sound, left scroll buttons, right scroll buttons, skip empty lines, control information, hide passwords, hot key information, announce shortcut keys, power saving mode, power saving kick in, check today's schedule, one-handed mode, Automatic spell-check, default document type, Default Browser, Automatically synchronize with time server, progress indicator, Bluetooth, wireless LAN and mass-storage device mode.)

You can navigate among the five groups by pressing "page down ("Space-3-4-5" or "F3-F 4")" or "page up ("Space-1-2-6" or "F1-F2")". When you navigate to a particular group, you are placed at the location in "Global Options" where that group of options begins. Though the "Global Options" dialog is divided into groups for ease of navigation, it is actually one long continuous list of settings. As explained above, you can move between items in the "list" by pressing "Space-1" or "Space-4". You can change the setting for each option by pressing "Space" or "Backspace".


Note: in addition to navigating by group, you may also use shortcut keys to jump to specific settings in the "Global Options" dialog. However, it should also be noted that often, the same shortcut key is used for multiple options. Thus, as is the case when using first letter navigation, pressing a shortcut key moves the focus to the first setting that matches the shortcut key, pressing the key again moves to the next setting that matches that shortcut key. If there are no more settings matching the shortcut key, the Braille Sense U2 MINI wraps around to the first match.
As stated above, many items in "Global Options" also have global hot keys. This means you can use this hot key from anywhere on the unit to instantly modify that particular setting without bringing up the "Global Options" dialog.
3.9.2 Global Options in Detail
Let's take a look at each setting in the "Global Options" dialog in more detail.
3.9.2.1 Braille display
The first item in "Global Options" is "Braille display". When your cursor is placed on this option, you can toggle the Braille display on and off by pressing "Space". The default setting is "On". Use "b (dots 1-2)" to quickly jump to the Braille display option in the list of items in "Global Options". You can also toggle the Braille display on/off from anywhere on the Braille Sense U2 MINI by pressing "Backspace-F3".
3.9.2.2 Braille Cursor
Use this setting to define how you want the Braille cursor to appear on the Braille display. By default the cursor is set to "Always up". Press "Space" to change the cursor to "Blinking," and again to turn the cursor "Off".
Use "c (dots 1-4)" to jump quickly to this option. Use "f 4-UP scroll" to change the appearance of the Braille cursor from anywhere on the unit.
Note that the Braille cursor can appear in 3 different forms:

1. "Dots 7-8"

2. Blinking "dots 7-8"

3. Blinking "dots 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8"


The blinking "dots 7-8" is displayed when you are using "overwrite mode" in the word processor. The blinking "dots 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8" appears when you are selecting text to denote the end of the selection.
In all other situations, the cursor is displayed as "dots 7-8".
3.9.2.3 Eight Dot Mode
You can choose to use 6-dot-Braille or 8-dot-Braille mode when entering ASCII text. The shortcut key is "e (dots 1-5)". By default 8-dot-Braille is set to off. WHEN your cursor is placed on this option, you can turn on 8-dot-Braille mode by pressing "Space". You can toggle this option on/off by pressing "F1-DOWN scroll" from anywhere.
3.9.2.4 View/input Braille Grade
This option lets you choose what grade of Braille you want to use when viewing/entering text. The shortcut key is "g (dots 1-2-4-5)". The available settings are Uncontracted Braille, Contracted Braille, and Computer Braille. You can cycle among the settings by pressing "Space". You can press "Space-g (dots 1-2-4-5)" to cycle through the Braille grades from any location on the Braille Sense U2 MINI.
3.9.2.5 Braille Code
The Braille code setting defines the rules by which Braille is translated to text and vice versa. The Braille Sense U2 MINI offers 3 English Braille codes as well as entry of Spanish, French, Italian, and German Braille. Thus the Braille code can be set to use "US", “UK”, "UEBC", (Unified English Braille Code) or "Spanish”, “French”, “German”, or “Italian".
The original intent of the UEBC was to explore the possibility of bringing together three of the official Braille codes that are used for Braille in English-speaking countries for various purposes, viz.: literary material (English Braille, American Edition), mathematics and scientific notation (Nemeth Code), and computer notation (Computer Braille Code).
Choosing one of the other 4 languages allows you to input Braille according to that language’s Braille rules, and read documents created in that language using the associated Braille translation. The Braille language also affects, lists, combo boxes, and edit boxes. Buttons and static boxes are not affected by the change in Braille language.
The short cut key used to jump to the Braille code option is "c (dots 1-4)". The default setting is "US". Use "Space" to change to “UK”, "UEBC" or "Spanish".

You can cycle through all the available Braille codes from anywhere on the unit using “Backspace-Enter-B (dots-1-2)”.


Note: If you change the Braille Code option while you are editing Braille in the Word Processor, the meaning of the Braille in your current document will be changed to reflect the current Braille Code setting. To avoid this problem, the Braille Code option should be changed before launching the Word Processor.
3.9.2.6 Line Breaks
When you read a document, if Line breaks are turned off, you can move to the previous/next word one by one and the display scrolls continuously without regard to the line placement.
Use the following commands:

Move to the previous/next word: Space-2 or Space-5

Move to the previous/next character: Space-3 or Space-6
For example, when creating a new document from the “File Manager”, you are prompted, “New document folder name”, first, you see “New document” on the Braille display. When you press “Space-6” or “Space-5”, the display shows “document folder”. When you press “Space-6” or “Space-5” once again, it changes to “folder name”.
When Line breaks are on,the display moves automatically to the next Braille display length of text. For example, when you read “New document folder name”, and you press “Space-6” or “Space-5”, the display moves to the next 18 cells of text and shows “folder name”
Use “Space” to toggle line breaks on or off. Use “a (Dot-1)” to quickly jump to “line breaks” from anywhere in “Global Options”.
3.9.2.7 Message Display Time
This option defines how the Braille Sense U2 MINI deals with system messages. You can set the unit to ignore system messages, to stand by until you press a key, or, if the Braille display is on, you can define how long the message remains on the display before automatically disappearing. Use "m (dots 1-3-4)" to quickly jump to this item in "Global Options".
The available settings are "Stand by," "Ignore", and display times of 1 to 10 seconds. The default setting is "3 seconds". Use "Space" to increase the message display time by one second and "Backspace" to decrease the message display time by one second. If you read the message before the display time has elapsed, you can clear the message by pressing any key.
Set the unit to standby mode by pressing "Space" until you reach "Stand by". In this mode, the message remains indefinitely until you press a key. If you choose "Ignore," messages are ignored and do not appear on the display.
3.9.2.8 Language
The Braille Sense U2 MINI can output speech in US English, Mexican Spanish, French, German, and Italian. You can change the Text-to-Speech (TTS) engine using the "Language" setting in the "Global Options" dialog.
When you change the language of the text to speech engine using this setting, menu items, prompts, and static boxes are not affected and remain spoken in English. However, list items, combo boxes, and all edit boxes and multi-edit boxes, such as documents or e-mail messages, are spoken and text is entered using the language chosen with the “Language” setting.
When text is entered using a given language, the language attribute is attached to that text, and whenever it is encountered on the unit, it is spoken using the TTS of the language in which it was created. You can change the language associated with a certain block of text using the “Edit Language Attribute” function described in section 5.2.15 of this manual.

The shortcut for jumping quickly to the "Language" setting is "l (dots1-2-3)". Press "Space" to toggle the TTS voice between "English" and "Spanish".


Note: you can change the TTS language from anywhere on the unit by pressing "Backspace-Enter-v (dots1-2-3-6)".
3.9.2.9 Voice
