No, I haven't written CSS for braille.
My friend who does use braille at times, doesn't care about minor
details like font-size and visual space on screen. She can't see it
She has no problems with any regular work of mine, and has overcome any
test-cases with intentional barriers I have given her.
Users with less than perfect eyesight and/or problems moving a mouse,
will welcome larger clickable areas and more space between links.
Doing much is rarely necessary - and often not even wanted by the user,
as those who can have found ways and means to use ordinary,
barrier-free, web sites.
In most cases: if it is organized to work well in Lynx, it works.
Some "super-accessible solutions" may actually make it harder for the
targeted user-group to access a page/site/application, because such
solutions "double-solve" what's already solved at the user-end. This
according to my friend who is member of one of the organizations for
people with various handicaps in Norway.
Myself: I'm not an authority in the field - I just use common sense and
try to avoid building barriers for anyone.
PS: math is the easy part. It's those 'human bugs' that complicates things.
