ok, it was too bad that brltty doesn't work with the tieman portabraille.
thought it should do so because it worked with combibraille displays.

Can I get a list on what displays brltty supports, so I know?

No, it doesn't. I'd be glad to write a driver for it, though, if anyone can
provide me with information on the protocol which it uses.

A bit of googling reveals that it's a mid- to late-'80s display which has a
serial and a parallel port.
