Yes, that's what Corinna meant by "default CYGWIN=notty".

Ok, it sounds like there is no need whatsoever to set CYGWIN=tty with
brltty. That is good news.
I'd be pretty surprised if it was the case since if CYGWIN=tty *was*
required then it seems like mintty would work too since the difference
between the ptys that mintty uses and CYGWIN=tty mode is very small.
Has anyone tried running brltty without setting CYGWIN=tty?
