Yes, you can code Python using JAWS. I don’t do such things, but apparently the biggest trick is keeping track of indentation. A free text editor called EdSharp is designed to do this, among lots of other things. If you want it, I will try to come up with the GitHub link.


There’s also the programmingblind mailing list on freelists.

Subject: Is Python coding something I can do with JAWS?



I have several friends and coworkers who are teaching themselves Python.  I haven’t done coding since college in the early 1990’s, and that was just a required computer science class.  Is Python a language I could potentially learn and use with JAWS?  If so, anyone have any recommended resources for self-learning?  I just saw a Groupon deal for a Python class, but I have no idea if the online learning tool would be accessible; It’s only $17, so I might try it.
