easy customization? I don't think so

One thing that would help easy customization get easy would be for emacs 
to announce controls when point lands on them.  Some of us can't see color 
let alone anything else.  Fortunately I have a backup up my .emacs file in 
the highly probable event I manage to make a real mess of it.  Some of us 
believe it or not are using computers without a mouse or screen just 
running off the screen reader.  This is why I had done several hand edits 
of my .emacs file to get it where it is now.  Earlier I tried using 
newsticker with the emacs-git version and found no support for 
configuration of that program in the info pages outside of M-x customize 
group newsticker.  When I opened that group, I couldn't figure out if I 
wanted to add the emacsworld feed how to do it or where to do it.  No help 
from google on this one either.  An iPhone app to date rssrunner was the 
only news reader able to add emacsworld to it and bring up articles.  The 
snownews and canto newsreaders both failed so I got curious about 
newsticker and that's what ran me into all of these neat discoveries.  Has 
emacs got any "don't leave home without them" settings for totally blind 
users that are touch typists?
