Is there a chance that these brailled instructions are in BRF? I could read them on my Braille Note Touch as I install Arch. I might end up Dualbeoting Arch and Windows, if possible, for the use of Microsoft Office 365, the PPSSPP Playstation portable emulator, with works well with the Xbox one controller in Windows, and Skype, but that's about all I can think of right now that I need Windows for, and I don't really go on TeamTalk anymore. I find Gnom" to be a little better for me, as I can access Wi-fi from the Top panel, rather than launching WICT and managing its rather inaccessible GUI.
