brltty - Access software for a blind person using a braille display

BRLTTY is a daemon which provides access to the console (text mode) for a blind person using a braille display. It drives the braille display and provides complete screen review functionality. The following display models are supported:
  • Alva/Optelec (ABT3xx, Delphi, Satellite, Braille System 40, BC 640/680)
  • Baum
  • BrailComm
  • BrailleLite
  • BrailleNote
  • Cebra
  • EcoBraille
  • EuroBraille (AzerBraille, Clio, Esys, Iris, NoteBraille, Scriba)
  • Freedom Scientific (Focus and PacMate)
  • Handy Tech
  • HIMS (Braille Sense, SyncBraille)
  • HumanWare (Brailliant)
  • Iris
  • LogText 32
  • MDV
  • Metec (BD-40)
  • NinePoint
  • Papenmeier
  • Pegasus
  • Seika
  • Tieman (Voyager, CombiBraille, MiniBraille, MultiBraille,

    BraillePen/EasyLink)

  • Tivomatic (Albatross)
  • TSI (Navigator, PowerBraille)
  • VideoBraille
  • VisioBraille
BRLTTY also provides a client/server based infrastructure for applications wishing to utilize a Braille display. The daemon process listens for incoming TCP/IP connections on a certain port. A shared object library for clients is provided in the package libbrlapi0.7. A static library, header files and documentation is provided in package libbrlapi-dev. Bindings to other programming languages can be found in cl-brlapi (Lisp), libbrlapi-java (Java) and python3-brlapi (Python).
