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.
