[BlindMath] Accessible LaTeX Editor with Biber

I can't answer your second question. However, you can always run biber and LaTeX from the command line.

I generally use Emacs for writing LaTeX. When I last tried it, TeXWorks (supplied as part of the MIKTeX distribution for Microsoft Windows) seemed to be accessible with a screen reader. You didn't mention having access to a Mac, so I suppose TeXShop for Mac OS wouldn't help you - again, it has been recommended as an accessible editor, and it worked with the VoiceOver screen reader when I last tested it on my Mac.
