THe braille viewer is intended mostly for teachers in educational
environments who are either trying to teach students braille or
attempting to understand what braille output is taking place. JAWS'
braille implementation is quite complex. It differs for different
displays. For example, FS provides significantly more functionality
for the displays it sells.

Terry, can you provide a little more info on what you're trying to
accomplish? I'll be able to help with some more details.
