Okay, Emacs isn't for everyone (strangely enough) [0], which is 
why I also mentioned using the GNOME desktop and screen reader 
as an alternative. 

GNOME has been developing this a11y software for at least eight 
years, and setting up a GNU/Linux system with GNOME, OOo, FF, and 
Java [1], is all achievable for technically competent sightless
users. Once set up, the system is _fairly_ usable for most
visually impaired users, and shouldn't be impossible for sighted
users wanting to use a PC on the move without a display. :)

[0] Though using VILE (Vi-Like Emacs Mode), you can use Vi 
    with Emacspeak ;^)    [2]
[1] After all, Sun paid for most of the a11y development ;)
[2] But you shouldn't :-/
