PBI - shell access via HTML?

I have a Partly Baked Idea (PBI) regarding shell access via HTML.  In reading about nushell (https://www.nushell.sh), I was intrigued by the fact that many of its commands (e.g., cal, ls) output data in tabular form.  This allows other commands to process the data, making certain sorts of pipelines more effective.

My PBI is that, if nushell were accessed via HTML, a screen reader could let a blind user navigate the rows and columns of any tabular output.  I'd like to get some early feedback on this idea.  Does anyone think it might be useful?  What issues would need to be resolved?  (Inquiring gnomes need to mine...)
