Braille support testing

I reviewed the script, and didn't understand the u option. What is set 
there? I am using braille display compatible with Alva ABT. It is connected 
via pl2303 USB-to-serial converter which is supported by Linux. When I start 
brltty, I specify /dev/ttyUSB0 device. Is this the case? Or some other 
configuration option must be introduced for my situation?
