Being that I email with a lot of people that cannot see. I was wondering if readers for braille are being worked on.
Yes, this is an important area that we were able to improve in Red Hat Linux 8.0 when we included the Linux kernel "speakup" patches, which drive various hardware voice synthesizers and braille readers. Unfortunately we found that the patch had very bad interactions with some keyboard layouts (mostly non-US layouts). Because the patch isn't set up to be modular, there's no way to limit the exposure of speakup to only those who need it. Unfortunately we weren't able to address all of our concerns in time to include speakup in Red Hat Linux 9.
We're also investigating the work that's currently underway to provide Accessibility Technology hooks into GUI environment.
