The problem is, that the installation programm thinks a braille device
from Handy Tech is connected..., because the protocoll of Handy Tech is
in use. So all data for Handy Tech devices are loaded, keymap e.g., and
that results in the different keymapping on your display :-(.

With the protocolls from Baum no recognition is possible..., so there is
no chance to get the right keymaps for your braille display working
during installation, sorry.

As written above, the keys are maped different to the normal mapping for
your device. But you should not see strange characters. Isn't it really
possible to move arround the screen?

>I hope threre is a solution for this problem.

The only solution I can sugest is to install the system with sighted
help :-(. Or give AutoYaST a try. With AutoYaST you can do a automated
installation, even without a braille display.
