This sounds right in today's technology.  But what if we have
something like self-brailling browser?

If we assume the existence of access-agent (braille translator in this 
case, and screen-reader in case with speech), we need to be clear
which tasks should be handled by the access-agent and which should be
dealt with by the browser.

     Cheers,
