Routing buttons above or below cells on your Braille display are recognised by SuperNova for positioning the cursor precisely, clicking on links and controls or even describing font styles. You can also use the routing buttons with the SHIFT key for selecting text to be used with the clipboard.
Input keys can be used to compose email or write documents in Braille. SuperNova accurately back-translates to standard text which appears in your mainstream application. Reduces the need to keep moving your hands between the Braille display and computer keyboard. Speeds up productivity for users confident writing in Braille.
Enhanced Braille helps you spot style changes in your documents by using dots 7 and 8 to indicate: underline, bold, italics, spelling and grammar errors, subscript and superscript, headings and links.
Switch to Physical Layout to get a Braille representation of how text is tabulated on your computer screen. Ideal for understanding the context of cells in a table or spread sheet.
Braille verbosity tells you about the types and states of over 60 kinds of control as you tab and arrow around web pages, windows and dialogs. For example, whether checkboxes are checked, the position of sliders and whether links have been visited. Choose the amount of detail from 4 built-in verbosity schemes; take ultimate control by creating your own verbosity scheme; even choose separate verbosity schemes for speech and Braille.
Display Braille on screen. Sighted trainers and teachers can follow what is happening on the actual Braille display with a fully synchronised on-screen equivalent. You can choose the position and size of On Screen Braille, so it remains visible but never gets in your way. On Screen Braille can also be used to learn Braille visually when no physical Braille display is available.
Control SuperNova direct from the Braille display. Whether you want to change a SuperNova setting, read a particular part of the screen or simulate a keystroke, SuperNova's Hotkeys settings let you customise the function of buttons on your Braille display.
Braille Tracking and Hooked Areas allow you to keep your finger on what's happening in your application away from the active cursor. These tools allow the Braille display to show what you need when you need it.
