The message is spoken by the braille lite, nothing shows up on the
braille display. If I put the braille lite in interactive mode and
simply echo data to the serial port it goes in fits and starts about
every 10 seconds it sends another 10 bytes. I am beginning to suspect
hardware problems with my second serial port.

Serial tracking is on, interactive is on, serial port is on, baud rate
is at 9600, no parity, half duplex, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, hardware
handshaking (though I have tried software as well). I will try it with
the other serial port on the pc and see if I have any luck.
Unix is a user friendly operating system. It just picks its friends more
carefully than others.
