How many keys do you have on the braille display to move the
window?  Up, down, top, bottom, and "back to cursor"?  And how
do you keep track of where the window is on the screen?  Is there
a kind of "line number"?  Or do you just have to mentally remember
where you moved it?  Or do you seldom use this and mostly just
move the cursor?

Okay, that should be possible to make, cursor and highlight in the
same place.  I will have to think about with what option or setting
to activate this.

By the way, do you still need to have some visual display attached
to your computer, or is it enough to have just the braille device?
Can you even follow fragments of the boot sequence on that?
