Hi,

I agree with Thomas that...

- braille display
- stereo/surround headphones
- stereo/surround speakers
- video screen with englarged fonts
- force feedback devices

...are definitely all "output devices". Wikipedia definition of an "input 
device":

"A number of devices are used for *entering* data into a machine, typically 
a computer."
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Input_device)

I think this is the general opinion on input/output devices.

Greets,

Richard
