I'd like to demonstrate to some sighted people how an 18 cell Braille display will show less information than a 32 cell Braille display via a computer screen monitor. I want to get across that reading 18 cells at a time is less smooth than 32. I thought the best way to do this would be to set up a computer to show 18 characters on one line of text and only that. But I also want to show how that is then scrolled. So, unlike a computer screen where you can see lots of lines of text, a Braille display only shows the one line. Does anyone know how I could set this up?
