[Icecast] looking for blind win32 users

I'm not blind but I write commercial broadcasting win32 software that a
lot of blind users like and use, because it uses standard Windows
controls; I always make sure everything can be done using keyboard
shortcuts; and navigation is possible using tab.
Now I know Oddcast is not one of the standard Ogg tools, but I thought I
would take this opportunity to mention that it is almost unusable by
blind users. I believe v3 is much better than v2 since it uses standard
Windows controls, but it is impossible to tab to the encoder list and
load an encoder configuration. If a user manages to click in the
encoder list and presses enter on a highlighted encoder, the whole
window closes. This should work the same as double-click.
These 2 issues should be a simple fix so hopefully Oddsock can have a
look at it.

Sorry to post this here, but I am pretty sure there are a few blind
win32 users who frequent the list.
I'm looking for a blind win32 user or someone visually impaired enough
to depend on assistive technology to use applications. I am doing
research related to win32 development and assistive technologies.
Essentially I'm trying to make sure a new application will be usable by
the differently abled.
Please contact me offlist if you are interested in helping.
