Well, as a fellow BLIND ham, I can tell you chirp is not accessible with jaws and windows. It is also not accessible with voiceover in OS 10. About the only operating system or you're going to have even a modicum of accessibility is a boon to Lenix. All other solutions are off the table. Wish I could be of more help, but developer doesn't seem to think that excess abilities all that important.
