I actually tried to put an old Alva Satellite 84 Braille display through BRLTTY, and it didn’t work. Mind you, I got that thing from VR back in 2004.

Brltty is a generic Braille display driver which is available on many different
operating systems (Windows, OSX, Linux, BSD at least) and supports a very
large number of Braille displays.
It can be used with applications such as NVDA to provide support for displays
for which NVDA itself has no specific driver.
The results are not always as complete as you might get with a specific driver
between the application and the display (for example, some features of the
display may not be supported), but it's a good way to get basic functionality
for a device which otherwise can't be used at all.
