Orca or EmacSpeak

emacspeak provides its own environment not a text console.  You can run a 
text console from emacspeak when necessary and doing so puts all of the 
power tools in your hands Linux has to offer so it's an advantage to learn 
especially if you're going for a real Linux sysadmin job or doing any 
other real Linux work since most of the young sighted competitors you have 
will focus primarily on the graphical user interface.  This trend with the 
younger Linux workers gets older managers frustrated when younger workers 
either can't do something at all or take too long to do it because they're 
using the mouse and the graphical user interface when some of the older 
managers can do tasks with the text console and keyboard in half the time 
or less.On Mon, 28 Jan 2013, mattias wrote:
