Somewhat dumb question here -- what exactly is
Audicle ? I assume its some kind of GUI, with Chuck on the back end doing
the heavy lifting. My question is really - is it a win32 app or will it only
run on X-windows. I'm a blind musician and have always wanted an accessible
synthesizer, something I can actually tweak fairly easily. Most (all)
stand-alone boxes have incredibly difficult interfaces which can only be
operated by sighted people. Software solutions are worse - completely
inaccessible GUI.  Might there be any hope for audicle in this sense?  I'm
certainly no expert in win32 programming or GUI building in general, but if
Cakewalk/Sonar can be made reasonably accessible, then why not audicle?

For good models of how to create accessible interfaces, ones which can
expose their state to adaptive tech. like screen readers and magnification
software, look at the gnome project, and Java Swing, both of which are
attempting to do this.
