One of my DX buddies have been blind since birth. Of course this doesn't stop him, but he's very aware how the user interface is accessible. I asked him to evaluate the KiwiSDR interface on my KiwiSDR. His response is that it's mostly not too bad, he's able to move around but there are a few issues. Below is his screen dump in Firefox - that's how he sees the interface.
What he wanted to change was:
Name the editable fields on the interface.
More meaningful names on some icons
Hide some of the content to reduce the information flow.
If you're interested to discuss with him further, I'll forward his email address to you.
And now his screen dump:
