They seem to offer a range of services to the visually handicapped,
including Braille editions of magazines, electricity bills in Braille and
large print, a service that transcribes email into Braille and sends it by
postal mail, Braille adaptation of services of mobile phone operators,
Braille bulletins during the Sydney Olympics, the World Cup site, toll-free
telephone bulletins during the Tour de France Cycle race. They signed a
partnership agreement with FIFA to have real time feeds during the World Cup
although the site doesn't look like a transformation, rather a manually
produced summary.

It seems like a service that's oriented towards the diverse needs of the
visually handicapped, rather than oriented towards any particular
technology.

The site does not require anyone to hand over an email address, you just
have to create a nickname and password so that you can access the site each
time with your visual parameters. The site does, however, rely on JavaScript
to do this. However, I have just accessed the site in Lynx without having to
enter any information, although there are some areas that could be
improved...
