Step 2: Open the Utility menu by pressing the letter U (dots 1, 3, 6)
Step 3: Open the Terminal for Screen Reader menu by pressing the letter S (dots 2, 3, 4)
Step 4: Press Enter on “Bluetooth Serial Port”
Step 5: From you iPhone, open the Voice Over settings
Step 6: Flick right until you reach “Braille”, then double-tap to open the braille page
