Due to a whole lotta eye problems (waahh), I've wondered: How do blind
or visually-impaired tech writers get thru their days? Do they rely on
text-to-speech conversion? What other technologies do they use? In an
increasingly GUI-oriented profession, what kinds of measures do
individual writers and teams resort to to help these writers be
productive and worth their keep?
