  I have so far believed that because my sighted colleagues don't have
to mess with rewiew modes, guess bitmaps and remember what
alt-leftcontrol-mother-in-law-space did at this mode but now i know what
is my actual problem. Thanks.

  Seriously talking: text-based (or cli if you prefer so) apps are much
easier for screen reader. I have almost same information about screen
contents than my sighted colleagues. In addition i have similar user
interface to enter commands; the keyboard.

  If you can get job in gui environment thats fine. But i personally
cannot compete with sighted colleagues. i'm glad i started to explore
Linux and networks at '95 instead of investing $3k into new computer
(would be obsolete now), os (obsolete now) and screen reader (very
obsolete now).
