I'm not blind but I suspect Lynx has some problems for blind 
users. I think Lynx should provide more information.

For Example...
  o linkname and URL where cursor is on
  o status radio button or checkbox where cursor is on
  o title of submit or cancel button where cursor is on
  o information of selection list (all item and selecting item)
  o what will happen when user presses a key

An experimental version of Lynx is here.

# Ouch! I've forgotten writing URL last time. :-<

I'm sorry that I've never tested Vocal-Eyes (it isn't in Japan).
I heard a Japanese Screen Reader for DOS didn't work 
with Lynx for Win32.
