I do not know what the other user, was using... but I do know a
professor of ecommerce/emarketing and also blind, was using Homesite ...
some of these editors could make it easier or quicker markup by hand...
they have tag completion plus a variety of built in checks possible?

NoteTab is another worth a look, EditPlus? I am not sure how these work
with blind users.
It would be interesting to view or read a list of authoring tools that

HTML Kit and FirstPage2000 [the second app mentioned is free] are both
similar to Homesite.

Netscape Composer?
Hopefully the mozilla version is continuing on in improvement and
