I have a blink friend who has some amazing tools. There are programs out there
that will read not only the text in a file, but also the menus and commands--I
dunno about dialogs and such. But it was a pretty amazing sight to behold. Also,
there are training programs and such to teach blinks how to use their computers
and programs--Tom did such training for a while, mostly for a company based in
Toronto, but also some here in NYC.
I can query him for more information about this topic, if you want.

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?
