Emoji and screen readers?

@Shadow Systems: I had sort of wondered that myself. Emoji are “named” symbols/characters, in the same way that letters have names. I’m therefore wondering why screen readers don’t say out loud the descriptive names when they encounter an emoji (although I can tell that it could get quite long winded for some of them)?
