Re: Programming Language

Not just any program, the needed information needs to be available
somehow and not all programs give even this much.

The scripting language is for situations where the information is
available, just not in the usual way (else jaws would have picked up
on whatever is to be read with no additional work).

I'm not a programmer, but I thought Jaws had a proprietary programming
language that you have to use to program for Jaws?

No, accessibility is not particularly dependent upon the programming
language used. For windows I would suggest starting with a .net
language like c# or and using the Windows Forms project type
(it is older and no longer recommended but it produces accessible
programs with basically no additional work on the part of the
programmer unlike the newer Windows Presentation Foundation which
requires that the programmer remember to implement the ToString
function especially). I have even seen plenty of programs from MS
where this basic step was missed.

Hi, it's Annabelle.
How would I design an app that can be fully recognized by screenreaders
JAWS? Is there a specific programming language I may have to learn? I could
be wrong, but isn't there a specific set of language codes that should be
implemented, like how JAWS recognizes the browser of the Windows Operating
Systems, for example, that which is found within Windows Explorer? I'd like
to try the C++ Programming Language, recommended to me by my friend, Markus
Johnson, but I'm not sure how to configure codes for things like buttons,
checkboxes, listboxes, comboboxes, hotkeys, and radiobuttons. Do I just
write these codes in a plain text editor like Notepad? I'm confused on this
