I've seen them, used in conjunction with DOS. But that was many years ago. They hooked somewhere into the GPU's output pipeline (after the GPU, prior to the CRT). A slider on the side allowed to select which text lines to put on Braille, one or two lines. 1234567890 QWERTZUIOP ABCDEFGHKL ----+ up/down YXCVBNM,.- | | :.:..:.:.: <---+ The Braille output was 1x80 or 2x80.
