I'm sorry, I guess saying 'it blows' was bad of me, I know better as I am a
developer myself. I don't have the time to put into RU at the moment.

Again I apologize to you, and the RB developers, no insult was ment... As
for saying what works that's kind of hard to say since nothing works. What
is RU developed in? and what GUI lib is being used?

Thanks, and sorry again.

Unfortunately, we have no blind developers willing to work on it. Simply
turning of the monitor and attempting to use it does not help improve the
accessibility because none of our sighted developers have any experience
with this, and it's impossibly to fully unlearn sighted habits when normal
computer use is still such.

Until such time as we get a blind user who's willing to put the effort into
improving it, it's unlikely it will see more than gradual, marginal
improvements. And even then, these improvements won't happen at all if blind
users simply say things such as "it blows" rather than taking the time to
file clear reports both on what specifically isn't working as expected, and
what can possibly be done to improve it, preferably by way of the bug

As to your voice problem, I have no experience with it but the information
you need should be available via
