Hi Sauro:

For linux braille support you may want to try brltty.  It is a 
console-mode interface, and doesn't interact with the KDE gui.

KDE plans to support braille-enabled screenreaders such as gnopernicus 
and orca, but the current versions of KDE do not include this support 
yet.   If you want braille access to the graphical Linux desktop now, 
you can try a recent version of GNOME, which should work with 
gnopernicus and orca.  Gnopernicus can use brltty for its braille 
output, so there is support for most braille devices available.  Most 
GNOME distributions include gnopernicus now, though in some cases the 
default versions of some accessibility packages are broken and you may 
need to upgrade.

best regards,

Bill Haneman
