The braille cells part is attached via serial.

Note: about the braille cells part support, we already discussed about
it on this list earlier:

I just didn't yet take the time to implement anything, but for serial
devices I expect things to be just fine.  As discussed in that thread,
USB support (which will be needed for other devices) will be harder, but
would be very useful since devices are now usually USB-based.
