[Athen] Alva Braille Display questions

Hello all,

Thanks for the feedback and ideas. It looks like the Satellite Pro is
dead - I was not able to get any response from the display after trying
different power cords, USB cables, or different operating systems (OS X
vs. Windows). I may try a last ditch effort to resort to the serial
port, but the fact that the display was non-responsive on two different
operating systems does not bode well.

The Alva Delphi is a bit more of a challenge and I may have another go
at that display. I was able to get the display to switch between the
serial and parallel port output, but that was about it (JAWS 11 with the
parallel connection kept crashing the computer). I may try to play with
the BIOS next to see what happens.

Thanks again for the ideas.

Take care,
