I fully support Samuel's acknowledgment. This effort is a major contribution
to the accessibility of Debian, making it one of the few distributions that
supports braille output in the installer (by default and with no need for user
intervention, if one has a USB braille device).

I have personally benefited from this work, and I know that I am not alone in
this regard.
