	A straw poll of screen reader users who use refreshable Braille displays in conjunction with their screen reading technology indicates that there is no support for the Braille or embossed stylesheets among these technologies. The same appears to be true for the speech media type also.

	I had responses from people using the following screen readers, with both Braille displays and speech feedback, all of whom confirmed that none of the paragraphs on the test page could be detected, with the exception of the screen media type paragraph:

Jaws, 4.0, 4.1, 4.5, 5.0, 6.0.
Window Eyes, 4.5, 5.0.
SuperNova, version unknown.
