I wish to be a programmer as noble as this team. The article does not say weather or it is open source or not.
Too bad a blind person wouldn't be able to start an app on an iPhone...
Not true. I'm sure someone will make an AUI (auditory user interface) wherein vision is substituted for constant tactile interaction such that auditory cues are given to confirm certain actions. For example, dragging your finger over an application icon translates its name from text to speech. Unobtrusive, pleasant rings indicate when the user passes over buttons, input fields, menus and the like. A quick double-tap would select them.

Not on iPhone. Apple doesn't let anyone mess with their UI.
Doesn't have to be a UI modification. It could be a standalone application which mimics the default UI layout and function, with added auditory enhancements.
How would a blind person start this application?
By putting it in a simple position in the list of applications, such as at a top corner. It would be kind of hard, what with the giant icons Apple is fond of, to miss. And if they do so happen to choose the wrong one, they can obviously use the menu button thingy to go back to the menu.
iPhone apps can choose the position of their icons?
