Re: speechd-el in terminal, and braille

Hello Samuel,

thank you very much for your hints. I have set WINDOWPATH (which was not
defined) to the value of XDG_VTNR, and reinstalled xbrlapi so that it
starts automatically. It works, speechd-el is now able to drive my
braille display. With one exception: the cursor routing keys are still
ignored (they work in console mode). Any ideas?

Also, should braille be enabled in Orca when speechd-el is running?
For speech, I know that Orca and speechd-el interfere negatively when
they are both active, but for braille, it is not clear to me.
