Braille Access to Linux
Hello folks,

Over the past year or so there has been a bit of interest by the North
American market to have some degree of Linux access with the BrailleNote
family of products.  Many of you are familiar with Braille TTY, a
Linux-based Braille screenreader which provides access to a Linux box.
The
Pulse Data Group is pleased to announce the arrival of a Braille TTY
driver
for the BrailleNote family of products.  This driver enables the user of
the
BrailleNote to access a Linux Box using his/her BrailleNote as a Braille
display.  It should be noted that firstly, this version of Braille TTY
is
still in Public Beta and should be released shortly.  Secondly, Braille
TTY
is a free downloadable program.  What this means is that if you choose
to
use this software, you do so with the understanding that HumanWare nor
any
other agent of the PDI Group will be offering technical assistance for
you
to install or use this driver.  This is typically the practice by all
mainstream and adaptive technology companies when its customers opt to
use
downloadable "freeware", although HumanWare does support to some degree
its
customers' usage of Microsoft's ActiveSync utility.

HumanWare has invested resources into ensure that this driver is
developed
to present to you, the BrailleNote customer, additional flexibility with
this product line.


the Braille tty project can be found at:
> http://mielke.cc/brltty
> From this location select the download link and download the 2.99z
beta.
> This beta has support for both the Braille 18 and 32 cell models as
> well as the Braille qt models.  This download contains all sources
> and documentation.  The project maintainer is Dave
>  mielke <http://mielke.cc/brltty> , dave mielke cc 

Thanks.
