Braille support testing

Hello folks,

We are trying to improve out-of-the-box support for braille displays for 
Feisty with this spec:

 From what I can tell, braille support on the Gnome desktop via Orca 
already works out of the box, using the braille monitor (on-screen 
graphical display for testing). However, since none of us in the devel 
team have an actual braille display we know little about the hardware 
side of it.

After Herd 3 is out (this week) we want to switch back on general USB 
detection and deploy a script to assist with the configuration of serial 
displays. We would appreciate help with testing from anyone with a 
braille device, and esp. serial ones.

The setup script on the wiki page above is also incomplete in that it 
needs the correct parameters for setting up brltty with the serial 
device. Any input is appreciated.
