You know, there's a person whose employer wanted her to go into web development. She didn't have much experience but "you're a bright kid and we need this so get on it newbie." The person working with her got wind of "Emacspeak" and went all in. She, was way in over her head. I recommended VS Code. Because it takes a crap ton of reading and learning to setup Emacs with Emacspeak in the beginning, and no one should have to do that at their job.


I mean, Emacspeak is wonderful. Beautiful even. Being able to understand syntax highlighting, which is done *nowhere* else for the blind, being able to know where bold and italic text is, it's beautiful. And it was done way before any other screen reader even thought of that idea. But Emacs is seen as advanced for a reason.
