Brltty is the usual daemon for providing braille accessibility. It is able to auto-detect USB devices, but not serial devices (it would be unsafe). distributions (see CategoryDistributions) often provide a "cheat code" way to configure serial devices: at CD-ROM boot prompt, you can type

something brltty=driver,device,table

A typical example is hence

something brltty=vs,ttyS0,fr_FR

For getting french braille on a VisioBraille connected to the first serial port.
