I have a Brailliant 40 display that works perfectly with Linux. It was my
choice after reviewing the specifications of every braille display that I
could find out about when making the decision in 2005.

Handytech displays are also well supported under Linux.

You would probably get more comments if you asked on the BRLTTY list, as this
is where you'll find Linux users with braille displays.

Braille displays are wonderful, and everyone who would benefit from this
technology should have a right to own one, regardless of economic means.
