Hi Martin, cc questions@

Might you be prepared to write a page for the FreeBSD handbook ?

	It could go under	"V. Appendices" ?

Having someone who is blind as author of such a page would make it
more authoritative & useful for other blind people I assume.

I guess you could start by correlate previous posting on this thread,
+ add your knowledge, keeping text short & linking to tools &
equipment manufacturers ? (& inc. a URL to the Knoppix blind version)

There's been a few people who have asked me over the years, & I've
never really known where to point them. 

PS A near blind person in Germany told me a decade or more back:
  - each country has a different Braille !? 
  - one line display systems in Germany are extremely expensive.
