It's possible that an Orca script can do this, but my suspicion is that yur
Emacs session is running inside a terminal, which is why Orca can read it. If
you run Emacs on the desktop, Orca won't access it because the Emacs GTK
widgets don't support ATK as required by Orca.

As I remember, Orca-s turns off speech but not braille, which should solve
your problem for now. This command is a toggle.

That will be related to the same issues as above. I don't know what the
easiest solution is, as I never run Emacs from a desktop environment. I want
my braille display to work, and the only way to do that is to run Emacs from a
console session.
