I don't have an answer Heather, but I wonder if there are at least several factors involved:

1) Complexity: A Braille display has a lot of moving parts - each Braille cell needs six (often 8) moving individual pins, plus the frame, plus whatever holds them plus the circuitry to run it.  So even a 14 cell Braille display would need 112 pieces printed individually just for the pins.  You could probably setup and print a "Sheet" of them that you then snap off, much like the little plastic pieces you get in a model kit, but even so, putting them together is going to be fiddly.

Assuming you overcome that, you also need someone to make those models in the first place.  For many companies, by the time they have invested the R&D into that, they're probably going to think it is more worth their while simply employing a factory to make the units, and sell them with such a markup that they recoup their costs.  If they distributed 3D files for you to print yourself, A) they'd need to sell a lot to cover the cost, b) Who would be responsible for faults? and c) Unless they made them very cheap (see point a)) they'd likely find the files were readily pirated and shared between people, with no revenue then going back to them.

That's all pure speculation off the top of my head, I really haven't looked into it.  I expect the complexity would be a big issue.  A 3d Printed Braille stylus I expect wouldn't be that hard to make (if someone hasn't already) as would be something like a signature guide. But many of the 3d models I've seen, particularly at the consumer end of the scale, tend to be things which can be printed in one or at least a small number of pieces.

But I am definitely surprised there doesn't seem to be more out there.

Actually just looking, here is an article from 2016 on a 3d printed refreshable Braille display which aimed to be a low cost device: https://www.3ders.org/articles/20160508-low-cost-3d-printed-braille-reader-aims-to-increase-literacy-rates-for-the-blind.html

There might be more out there!

I figure there are things I can think of - such as guides, small tactile objects and so on, but I'm sure there are plenty more things I haven't even thought of, and others interested in the same thing (either people who are blind or have low vision, family members or people in the industry for their clients).

Yeah, I saw your message right after I sent mine, and I was embarrassed, besides being disgusted with myself because I had been wrestling with my computer for the past hour! You got the results of my upset, and I'm sorry. I was completely exhausted and malarkifized and shouldn't have replied to your message at all.

Excuse me, but I accidentally pasted the wrong address. I thought I copied the correct address to the clipboard but I didn't. But then I re-corrected myself before you could even think. So before you tell me what she's looking for just know that I knew what she was looking for. Earlier somebody had asked for the subscription info for another list and it's still happen to be on my clipboard. Not everything is going to be picture perfect around here.

Re: reading file information in file explorer JAWS versus window eyes.

Hi Adam,

JAWS doesn't read these tool tips when arrowing through the filenames.

If the view is set to list, then using right/left arrow keys will present the info. Otherwise they can press jaws key plus tab to read all associated file data.
