One more that I should have mentioned:  StatET, a plug-in for the 
Eclipse IDE.

A long time ago I used to know some of this stuff, but now I find 
working in Windows quite difficult.  I never knew it well enough to know 
the advantages and disadvantages of the approach RGui uses versus the 
one that dasher seems to be expecting.

On the hopeful side, accessibility has always had a relatively high 
priority in the R Project, and there seems to be a recent push in that 
direction.  Perhaps there will be an opportunity for someone to bring up 
this issue at useR! 2022 (https://user2022.r-project.org).
