BRLTTY is a daemon which provides access to the Linux console (text
mode) for a blind person using a soft braille display.  It drives the
braille terminal and provides complete screen review functionality.
After installation, brltty will be started at boot time. If you
don't want that, make non-executable the script /etc/rc.d/rc.brltty
To configure brltty, run /usr/sbin/bp2cf or edit /etc/brltty.conf
