help for visually impaired who want to use Flex

I was recently in a qso with W1DDW.  He has a Flex radio that he has had to stop using as he has become legally blind.  Does Flex offer any adaptive software that could help him regain use of the radio?  I believe he's using a 3000.
Thanks,
Andy, k2oo

Andrew,

See this very short chain:

The JAWS screen reader identifies GUI parts by voicing the tags or engaging a pin-reader row, with each mouse-over;  care in screen layout and meaningful plus short tags goes a long way for "readability".  
Braille pin readers are expensive, especially larger arrays. 

This area has been very quiet from FRS.
