Animations apply to those as well - if you're animating a speech
property, for example, you'd want it to apply when using your speech
reader.

braille and tty are just specialized screens, and insofar as they
respect any part of CSS, they should work fine with animations as
well.

So "interactive" should be just fine for T&A.
