Along the far edge of the top face of the unit, are located a speaker and 2 LED lights. The speaker is located between dot 1 and dot 4 and is used to output system sounds and audio alerts. The LED lights are located above the navigation buttons on the right side of the top face. The left LED light shows Bluetooth status; when Bluetooth is activated, this LED light turns blue. The right LED indicates the status of the power; when you are charging the unit, the LED turns red. When the Braille EDGE 40 is powered on, the LED turns yellow. These LED lights help a sighted person easily determine the status of the unit when working with students. This helps them quickly evaluate whether options need to be changed for accomplishing current tasks, or if options are activated unnecessarily, and can be turned off to save power, etc. 1.4.2 Left Panel The left panel contains 2 items. About halfway between front and rear of the unit is the Bluetooth on/off switch. Slide the switch toward the rear of the unit to turn Bluetooth on. There is a Braille letter “b” behind the Bluetooth switch to indicate the correct direction. Slide the switch toward the front of the unit to turn Bluetooth off, in which case, you can save power while using the internal applications on the unit or while the unit is used as a Braille terminal via USB. Near the rear of the unit on the left panel is the SD card slot. The Braille EDGE 40 can accommodate high capacity SD cards up to 32GB. 1.4.3 Right Panel The Right panel of the Braille EDGE 40 contains the USB OTG port and the AC adapter jack. Nearer the front of the unit on the right panel is a small port for connecting a USB cable. Use this cable to connect the Braille EDGE 40 to a computer for use as a USB Braille display or to charge the unit. To charge the unit via AC power, please connect the small round end of the AC adapter cable to the round jack near the rear of the right panel.

Plug the larger, box-like end of the AC adapter in to a standard electrical outlet. 1.4.4 Front Panel The front panel contains only one button near the right end of the front panel is a large, rectangular button used to turn the Braille EDGE 40 on/off. Press the power button on the right side of the front panel for about 1 second to power the unit on/off. When the unit is powered on, again, hold the Power button for about 1 second to power the unit off. 1.4.5 Rear Panel The rear panel of the Braille EDGE 40 contains 2 very small buttons. Near the right end of the rear panel is a small pin hole containing the “Hard reset” button. The “Hard reset” button is used when the “Reset” button has no affect or when the battery is completely depleted and connecting the AC adapter doesn’t reboot the unit. You can use a toothpick or the end of a

    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.
