Hi Robert
This topic came up this summer. Since then I heard of a blind guy
that does song parodies for the Stern show. He goes by Psych. His
website is http://www.psychmusic.com/contact.html
In an interview he said that he uses ProTools with VoiceOver on Mac.
He also does some work for a radio show produced by Shadow Stevens.
Even though his work is mostly explicit song parodies it is pretty
high quality. He would be a good source to try to contact for some
