I am not an expert on these things, but I know one visually impaired
programming person. He uses a nifty one-line display that you read with
a finger. I have a hard time believing that text to speech standard
would be nearly as effective as that. My point is that the usability of
Python for visually impaired people is a rather poor argument for case
insensitivity.

Just my 2 öre[*].
