PSK-31 for the Visually Impaired

The authors of Accessible Digipan are trying to raise
$10,000 via to support costs of
developing and updating the software. There is a link
from the main webpage.
As a keyboard mode whose messages print out on a computer screen, hams with visual impairments have not been able to use PSK-31 and similar modes … until now. 

The ARRL Letter reports that a new app called "Accessible DigiPan" merges the popular digital mode software with the popular "JAWS" screen reader program. 

Two blind hams – Richard McDonald, KK6MRH, and Jim Snowbarger, WA0PSS – developed the app and are offering it for free to any amateur (although donations are encouraged).
