No, that will make no difference.

,n,8,1 should not be added to the Wiki for the usage of the screen
program, because it does nothing, and I would not have the Wiki
deceive anybody.

The line noise depends on the power supplies being used, and the
amount of isolation, and the way in which the contacts are mated
... so many variables, if we documented them all we'd have a tutorial
on using serial ports ... in an age where they are rarely used by most
