*Some* braille readers are basically screen-readers, but using braille
rather than audio.  Others are basically haptic screens (or printers)
that render text in braille, and may have some representation of other
parts of the page via touch as well.

The former doesn't apply any properties, basically, but the latter
certainly can.
