Hello altogether,

first of all I'd like to beg your pardon if this isn't the place to
answer questions like mine. Please tell me the right address in that

A few weeks ago I searched in the inter net for home banking software
for linux. Thats how I got interested in GnuCash and especially in its
HBCI facilities. Unfortunately it turned out soon that GnuCash in its
current state is unusable for me because its a gnome based
application. I'm blind and therefore unable to use applications
running under the x-system. So my question is (you guessed it!)
whether it might be possible to write a console interface to GnuCash,
for example using ncurses or something similar. It might be most obvious
that I have hardly an idea about the problems related to such a
project. Perhaps you can think about the suggestion or explain the
reason why it should be impossible to realize a console solution.
