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 (ABT3xx/Delphi) * Baum * BrailleLite (18/40) * BrailleNote (18/32) * EcoBraille displays * EuroBraille displays * Freedom Scientific (Focus and PacMate) * HandyTech (all models) * LogText 32 * MDV braille displays * Papenmeier * Tieman Voyager 44/70 (USB), CombiBraille, MiniBraille and MultiBraille * Tivomatic (Albatross) * TSI (PowerBraille/Navigator) * 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 libbrlapi0.5. 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 python-brlapi (Python).

Package version:3.10~r3724-1+lenny1


brltty for Debian

The ViaVoice and Theta speech modules are intentionally not included in the
binary package due to license incompatibilities.

I also removed /sbin/brltty-install because I think
as soon as we have a .deb package, the reinstall
method isn't necessary.
(feel free to complain about this if you need it).
