xbrlapi - X11 BrlAPI helper for Linux/Unix

xbrlapi [option ...]

xbrlapi connects to a BrlAPI server in order to provide it with the ID of the X11 window which currently has focus. It also simulates X keysyms from braille key presses (else brltty would simulate them using a qwerty keyboard). By default, it puts itself in the background, unless option -n is given.

Options are processed sequentially from left to right. If an option is specified more than once, or in case of a conflict, the rightmost specification takes precedence.

The following options are supported:

The BrlAPI server to connect to.
The BrlAPI authorization/authentication string.
The X display to connect to. If not specified, the content of the DISPLAY environment variable is used.
Keep xbrlapi in the foreground.
Do not write any text to the braille device.
Print a command line usage summary and then exit.
Print a thorough command line usage summary and then exit.

For more details on the purpose of xbrlapi, see BrlAPI's on-line manual at [http://brltty.app/doc/Manual-BrlAPI/English/BrlAPI-3.html].
