    initial v1  
    1515It would surprise me if actual screen reader users are as jealous and eager to deprive non-screen reader users from features which do not benefit screen reader users as members of the WordPress accessibility group are. I'm not a surfer but I don't want to keep surfers from [http://www.surfscience.com/topics/surfboard-design/ enjoying soft top boards]. Nor do I begrudge marathon runners advanced running shoes, even though for health reasons I can't run (I cycle instead). Going the other direction, I'm the last person to want to deprive wheelchair users from having the most advanced innovations in wheelchair design.

    17 Heck, due to long hours working on the computer, I've had issues with vision myself (severe headaches looking at the scree, blurry vision). Who knows when I'll have to use a screen reader myself as a primary interface (I had to give up reading any news and just listen to audiobooks for two weeks recently). Hence I even consider myself in the target audience for both code editors. On both sides of the code editor question (visual and screen reader), I'd want the best possible tool for each use case, not a single code editor which doesn't really suit either side. To make another analogy, I don't wear the same shoes for hiking as I do for cycling.
