Hi Ger,

If you're a brailleist, you might want to give braille screen input a look. Some of the braille translation is a bit quirky if you make a mistake and need to go back and edit a word so it pays to look over what you've typed, but you may find it quicker than standard or touch typing.

Cheers,

Ed

If you don't want to use a braille display then I can recommend the BraillePen Slim which is a Perkins style keyboard and helps with the gestures on the phone. Another option is to use the virtual braille keyboard if you don't want to carry an additional device.
