I have no idea if orbit research has a spanish distributor, I bought it directly from APH when they were one. I guess I could change the files to something more coherent and then submit them, but orbit does not state where I could do that and I believe that translations are no longer open source, or that is what an update from a couple of months back made me think.

Hi.
I just checked, and no, there is no official spanish distributor. I just thought that because of the translation.
I'll recommend you to contact Orbit Research directly and offer a better translation. The translation works a bit strange, and the translation documentation could have been much better.

Best regards SLJ.

I will do that and see what happens.
in the meantime, and another little interesting thing, not sure if this has happened to anyone else, but there is no explanation anywhere...
It turns out that when you turn the orbit reader off and store it, if you have not used it for say, a couple of days it turns on and off randomly, like really quick I guess to refresh the cells, it does this twice very quickly, and this has startled me at night hahahaha
there is actually no predefined time, it just happens very randomly and lasts for about 4 seconds or so. I have noticed this does not happen when battery is about or below 50%.
Maybe this is a self-regulating thing? a temperature and weather thing...
aside from this no quirks or issues at all.

Hi.
Yes, I'm going to ask the tech support about this random display refreshing thing. It is quite weird. smile

Hi all, still about the grade 1 and grade 2 in Orbit. Suppose if you open a txt file, will it automatically convert the text into grade 2 contracted braille?
This has been on my mind for some time, and something in consideration as whether or not to buy the Orbit Reader or not. I would personally prefer grade 2 braille by default, and more support for other file format which illiminate the need for conversion.

nope, no conversion at all. Get braille blaster or a rather mediocre script APH created called send to braille for getting English only grade 2.
Other languages and so on will have to be done manually or using software. Oh, and also, tech support will not even bother to respond to anything, so don't even consider it if you plan to have good support or wish to be treated well as a quote valued customer. Aside from this, device works wonderfully.
