NAME isn't meant to be read. It's for machine (browser) use, not for
human use.

I'm not sure if any browsers currently do anything special with <map>--
all I've heard is "future browsers." So i am not sure if doing it this
way will actually have any immediate accessibility effects in existing
screenreaders.

Does anyone know more about this, regarding how screenreaders use
<map>?

So do insiders.
