I don't see what is silly in the question ? After all, if unicode allows the
display of multilingual pages on the web where the full contents are
accessible to people who understand all the displayed languages, it is not so
far fetched to imagine that blind people may want to enjoy the ability to
access different languages at the same time thanks to unicode ???? Or am i
missing something ?

i am pretty sure we have braille using members of the list. what do they think
about this ? what are the problems they are facing when they try to display
different languages on a unicode text ?
