You might want to check with the folks at the International Braille
and Technology Center. I don't believe ChromeVox yet supports
Braille displays, but could be wrong. It is a work in
progress. There is currently a test going on, they have loaned them
to some blind guys. You might ask on nfbcs, or gui-talk -- you are
likely to run into somebody with experience in this area.
Go to www.nfbnet.org/mailman/listinfo/
for a list of lists.
