Hi Eric, 

I have a 15 year old blind son who is very into programming.  Unfortunately I am just getting to your email after my son, Michael, has left for school for the week.  When he returns home this Friday, I will ask him to respond to your question.  Michael has learned a lot by listening to pod casts and magazines related to computing.   Since he has this interest and there is frequently someone off-loading an old pc he has been the recipient of several well-used computers and peripherals.   Michael likes to remove windows and put Linux open source-ware on his computers. I believe that he has found some open-source ware more accessible than windows.  

I'll ask Michael to reply to you,   Jennifer Duffell-Hoffman
