Comunicating from your Linux machine?

Email and IRC are just about the only options that are customizable for 
a blind Linux user.

Not necessarily. Pretty much anything that can be set up in Pidgin can 
be used. This includes XMPP, which is pretty robust, although some 
versions of Pidgin don't seem to work well with XMPP voice 
communication. There is Telegram, which works at least for text, but it 
may require running in a terminal, unless there is a working Pidgin 
plugin. I can't get the desktop app speaking for some reason, though it 
may just be because I'm missing an accessibility gsettings option.
