For me, Python is pretty easy since Emacspeak reads indentation. Reading manpages is also easy because in Emacs one can move from heading to heading.

It seems like there should be a FAQ or wiki page that gives this sort
of info for all of the common console screen readers.  I realize that
the manual for each one probably documents this sort of thing, but my
impression (from you and other blind programmers) is that finding the
information isn't as easy as it should be.
