Accessibility should be a major consideration for a tool like Forrest. 
And this is an important point.

On a slightly off topic note, since you mention visually impaired users, 
I keep thinking a cool feature for Forrest would be a "voice" 
representation of Forrest content. That is generate a version of the 
content to drive a voice synthesiser. Does anyone have any experience of 
the relevant technologies?

I'm not sure if that can be easily done with the current skinning 
system, perhaps Thorsten can provide a hint.
