Re: Brltty and Braillelite Millennium 20

No, since we've never had access to one. Assuming that it's similar to
supported models of the BrailleLite, it may at least partially work.

Are you asking what you'd need to do if you yourself figure out how to make the
code work with the M20, or are you asking what'd need to be done in order to
help us make it work?

Yes.

Hardware flow control.

Yes, you can type input on the BrailleLite.
