BrlAPI is a service provided by the brltty daemon.
Its purpose is to allow programmers to write applications that take
advantage of a braille terminal in order to deliver a blind user
suitable information for his/her specific needs.
While an application communicates with the braille terminal, everything
brltty sends to the braille terminal in the application's console is
ignored, whereas each piece of data coming from the braille terminal is
sent to the application, rather than to brltty.
