    Hello I'm a blind user who is wanting to get into amicher radio. I do
    have a rtlsdr so I do listen. I am wondering if there is accessible
    software for a user with no site like me to start using digital modes.
    I have never done amicher radio befor accept on ham sierth Also I am
    wondering how a blind user would go about installing a upconverter and
    setting it up. Also what would you recamend I start with interms of
    digital modes or voice modes.

    Any text mode using tones you should be able to tune with your ear and use whatever text to braile device you can use.

    RTTY is a good starting point then move from there.

    Monitoring RTTY is to my mind a good idea. If you feel mixed characters is because RTTY is straight out with no error corrections.

    To decode the tones have to be high pitched, around 2300 hz
