I have done some more testing this morning. I booted the installer with
a braille display connected. The message showed on the braille display
that brltty was starting and then the display went blank. As a
troubleshooting step, I went to another terminal and killed the espeakup
process. As soon as I returned to the installer on tty 1, braille was
working and a message showed on the display that localization had failed
and that I could press enter to continue which took me to the main menu.
I didn't do an install past this point but when I selected a few menu
items they seemed to load normally. Please let me know if there is any
other information that I can provide that would assist with tracking
this down.
