Hello Mr. Chmiel,

I have some minor experience working with the visually impaired (usually
not complete blindness). Can you describe the operating system you use and
how you make use of your screen reader for editing? Most readers will not
be familiar with such things.

In the interim, you may want to use another editor for your programming. I
do this myself occasionally but recognize that the Lazarus editor has
better integration with the design workflow.
