adapter doesn’t reboot the unit. You can use a toothpick or the end of a paperclip to press the “Hard reset” button. Be careful when pressing the “Hard reset” button as, if you are not careful, pressing too hard or using an end too small may damage the device. If you press the “Hard reset” button on the rear panel then press the power button on the front panel, the Braille EDGE 40 reboots, initializing all the settings on the unit to their factory defaults. Toward the left end of the rear panel is a small, round recess with a dot-like button inside it. This is the “Reset” button. If your unit is not responding properly, press this button to perform a soft reboot of the Braille EDGE 40. NOTE: do NOT press the "Reset" button for more than 5 seconds. It takes about fifteen seconds for your unit to complete the reboot process.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
