Have you actually talked to a blind person about that?  They often
prefer the GUI applications since they tend to interact better with
screen readers and the accessibility software available for the GUI's
toolkits.  Sounds crazy, I know.

Anyway, Emacs plays in a league of its own for blind people due to
Emacspeak.
