Hi,

It's fair to say for anyone thinking about Braille Me, that it too, can only be upgraded using Windows.

All the best

Steve

Hi all,

I have the same problem. I'm thinking about installing Windows 10 via BootCamp so I can perform the update as I occasionally experience random pins either popping up when they shouldn't or not popping up when they should. It's minor but does frustrate me at times.

Best regards, Paul

I can’t see how a Windows only machine upgrade would be acceptable, so if somebody could direct me as to where to look to download the upgrade onto a Mac I’ll be grateful; unless of course it is windows only, in which case I would feel extremely annoyed having not had this pointed out to me at the point of purchase.
