Now to the software question: does there exist any
sound editor with a

vision-related disability I can't use a graphical display and therefore need a
text-only solution - but all the sound editors appear to require X11. Surely
it should be possible to design an audio interface to a digital sound editor.
i have no doubt that its possible. i also have no doubt that there is a
PhD waiting for the first person to do this. you are talking about
developing an entirely new set of user interface metaphors for a
potentially very complex task. this is never easy, and doing it without
using the sensory input that the vast majority of programmers utilize
during their own interactions with a computer makes it even harder.
