I don't remember the announcement of brld, but it sounds interesting,
where can I find more detail? I agree that hard coding a set of keys is
not good, and that ideally if this could be done before orca then this
is better as it could impact on other projects (an example of this was
where I wanting to add braille support in a python program, but it was
before the brltty official python bindings, and while orca could through
its own I wasn't sure how much these may have been orca dependent, so
was pushed to libbraille, which I feel isn't as good (particularly as it
isn't being maintained anymore)).

But this emphasizes my thoughts that there has to be a braille driver of
its own for Orca, that additionally should be adjusted to the different
types of devices; a whole lot of work! I guess it only can be done when
the team finds more contributers.
Some months ago there was an announcement of brld in this list but
we became no feedback of the community.
Brld is able to deliver the state of all available braille keys on a
To have a well working braille support in orca we need some
braillekeymappings for each braille display.
I think it is not the best way to have hardcoded braillekeys.
So my sugestion is: have a look to brld and help this great project.
BTW. I am working allways with suse-blinux/brld on the text console.
The first released driver of brld for orca is usable.
