I am testing a beta build of OracleEnterpriseLinux to see how accessible

The installer is not at all accessible, but once installed, orca seems to
work fine in gnome, and brltty works great at the console.


My problem is I can't get brltty to work with orca in Gnome, so I don't
have Braille support in gnome.  I have gnome and brltty working
successfully together in debian and ubuntu, but can't seem to get them to
work together on OEL.  Yes I did check the use Braille option in orca's

I had this problem in fedora and my guess is that you are having the
same issue. Make sure that /etc/brlapi.key exists and that it contains
some data. Also make sure that you have read permissions for this file.
More is here . Hope this helps.
