I don't know about how this works with a screen reader, you might want
to connect using ssh to the virtual machine. Don't know how good putty
or other ssh clients work with screen readers though but that will be
a programm running locally on windows.

You start the window through a cygwin entry. It looks the same as a
usual command prompt window (but runs somewhat different).

Sorry, but I have no experience with screen readers.

Something different: your mail client doesn't insert quotation
characters in the quoted text. This makes it quite hard to read. I
don't know if this is intentional, but if it isn't it would be nice if
