Yes, that's correct. The only windows ce applications it can run would be those which don't directly ask the user for input, or display output (I.E. command-line only driven programs). This is because the braille display and speech aren't registered as output devices directly in win ce.

Also, since they ported keysoft from DOS to win ce, they could probably just as easily have ported it to the linux kernel.
