Instructions for developers using BrlAPI to drive Canute

“Brltty has an API known as BrlAPI that works over TCP/IP or over a local socket (on Windwos that’d be a naemd pipe). The best way, therefore, would be to run brltty, telling it to use its Canute driver, and to communicate with brltty via BrlAPI. NVDA on Windows, and Orca on Linux, are examples of applications that use BrlAPI.” — D Mielke
