Hi all,

We are upgrading our computers and have older PowerBraille displays which are using parallel and serial ports for communicating with the PC. Has anyone successfully used a USB adapter and have the communication stay reliable? Or, is it time to invest in newer technologies?

Thanks for the suggestions!
