Hi Anna.

I'm not aware of any AT that would report their existence via the browser.

Additionally, from a philosophical perspective, I'm curious what 
motivates the question. I feel like the most responsible approach is to 
send the same content to everybody, be they you, me, the googlebot, or 
folks using AT. Well structured content is usable by everybody.
