There seems to be a fairly complex set of user agent responsibilities 
going on in this case.

The braille hardware connects to the access software (e.g. a screen 
reader), which sits on top of the OS, using a (probably) mainstream browser.

Which one should pick up the different media types?

Presumably, if the browser/OS do not, then the access software would 
have a difficult time using them?

Kind regards,

-Alastair
