Hi Charles,

Do you know if any user agents support that media type? (Or 'braille' 
which might be the obvious choice from the CSS 2.1 spec).

Knocking up a quick test page:

Moz & IE6 show only all & screen on viewing, and only the all/print 
types when print previewing (correctly I assume).

However, JAWs only reads the all/screen types, not the speech type. 
Technically incorrect, but perhaps practical? (Results from other screen 
readers would be useful.)

Do the braille readers understand their media type? I don't have access 
to one, but since most use something like JAWs as an intermediary 
anyway, I would guess probably not... as there aren't many sites that 
use them, it is something of a chicken & egg situation.

Kind regards,
