I am brand new to Arduino and am very excited by the possibilities. However I am totally blind and am really struggling with the IDE. I have tried using both a new Mac running Lion and a fairly new HP running Windows Vista neither is functional. On the Mac I can access the menus but not the text editing portion of the IDE on the Windows machine my screen reader doesn't recognize the IDE at all.
I would like to know if there are any other blind Arduino members and if so what are they using for software development tools? I would greatly appreciate any help.
