Re: Programming Language

Paul Martz <skewmatrix@...>
 

I would say that both python and C++ are accessible programming languages - that is, blind programmers can use either. The thing that makes it accessible is the text editor and the screen reading software that you use.

However, one thing I want to warn you about regarding Python. The syntax of the language is indentation-dependent. You need to be able to check for proper indentation of each line. This is something that sighted programmers can do at a glance, but I feel it is more tedious for a blind person to do.

You can do user interface controls (GUI controls) using either language. Python has some kind of module that you include, and C++ interfaces easily with Qt. I know that the user interface created by C++ and Qt can be made accessible to blind end users. Personally, I've ran into some issues with Python user interfaces, but haven't tried to create one myself, so I don't know whether the interface was not accessible due to programmer error, or some inherent flaw in Python user interfaces.

If I sound like I'm recommending C++, it's probably because that's the language I'm most familiar with. Sometimes, using the development environment that you're most familiar with is the best solution. 

I am very low vision due to a progressively worsening eye disorder, and I just want to add one more comment. I've found it very difficult to transition from programming as a sighted person to programming as a blind person. I believe this is because I have learned programming using my eyes, not my ears. Never, in all my years of school and employment, did I ever hear a programming language read out loud to me. Now, as a blind person today, hearing a screen reader read a segment of code is almost nonsensical to me. It's as if the wiring in my brain doesn't exist that would understand spoken code. It's very frustrating. It's like I need to learn programming all over again. I hope you don't run into problems like this. I think, if you learn from the start to program as a blind person, you should not have this kind of issue.

I wish you the best of luck with your project.

If I start with Python, is there a manual out there that I can study? Better yet, can Python be programmed in a text editor like Notepad?

I am not understanding your question well. I guess that you are asking the following:

What language is able to create accessible programs for visually impaired users as well for sighted?

I am confused because when you are talking about programs, languages and users each part is independent.

You create a program using a language, the operating system runs the program that you created, but the user will access the program that you created, no the language.

All languages could be accessible or not accessible at all. It depends on the way how you created the programs.

If you are just starting, you can start with Python, there are developing inviroments very accessible, or you can use visual studio, that also is very accessible.

Now the accessibility of the programs that you create depends on the way how you created, so it depends on you.

Hi Annabelle,

If you are just starting, I will not recommend start from C++. C++ is very good because you are able to develop software that will not require interpreters like visual basic, c#, python, and many others. However it imply that C++ is a little bit more complex than python or visual basic.

I don’t know what is the experience that you have, but if you are just starting, you might be better with a visual basic language, where you are able to add and modify those controls that you want to create, combo boxes, list boxes, buttons, and all of that. As higher is the level of the language that you want to use, it is more easy to be handle for us, but at the same time it imply that it will use more computer resources, and more dependency of the operating system. As lower is the level of the language that  you want to use, you are closer of the machine language, so the computer will use less resources, and it will be more independent of the operating system.

However, if you want to use controls like combo boxes , buttons, and all of that, other choice that you have is the web development. A web app runs on a server, no matter if the visitors are working on a Mac Os or on a windows computer.

Choices for web development are many but ASP and PHP are the most common today. ASP web apps runs on windows servers, but the pages are going to be seen on whatever operating system with a software to browse on internet. PHP runs on apache web servers, but the web pages are going to be seen on computers with operating systems that support web browsing.\

So at the end, no difference.

Hi, it's Annabelle.

I hope that some of you fellow JAWS members might have an easy solution to this problem I'm having. I am a beginner at computer programming, and I want to make a program with a language that is not only accessible to screen readers like JAWS, but is universal across Mac and Windows operating systems. I want to learn how to program things like buttons, checkboxes, radio buttons, paragraphs, textboxes, sections, combo boxes, listboxes, tree views, progress bars, scroll bars, list views, and sliders. I'd like to try the C++ Programming Language, recommended to me by my friend, Markus Johnson (Yes, that's "Markus" with a "K", and not a "C"), 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 one! But another friend of mine, Marc-Pierre Verge, tells me I should use Python. Now I'm really confused! Which language would you recommend? The program that I'm making is an app that I like to call "Ceremony Script Generator".

for Windows 7, press tab when you're on the list of files and press

Re: Jaws not finding content in word 2016

Of course, you can use it in text editors or word processors as well, but it will work reliably only within the current screen. It is sometimes useful, though, because it brings the cursor directly to the search result, no need to close the search window. However, I never use it in Word or editors.

as far as I know, JAWS search (Insert+CTRL+F) in Word or all program windows except the web-like ones (browser, PDF) only searches for strings on the current screen. Therefore, CTRL+F works better there because by default, this function searches for the string in the entire document.

The following problem is happening on 3 different computers running Jaws 18 last release on windows 10, and word 2016 office 365.

When I have a word document opened, and I press insert + control + F to find a string. When I press enter to start the find function, 90% of the times jaws says, string not found.

However I know that that string is there so I try to use the word find function, pressing control + F, then I press enter.

Yes, using the find function on word, I am finding strings that jaws  is not able to find.

What is happening here? Why the find function  in jaws is not working consistently?

Thanks for all,

Re: Jaws not finding content in word 2016

So, it means that insert + control + f  it is not a function to be used on word or text strings/documents?

So I should understand that insert + control + f it is to be used on dialogs, but not on text strings?

Quite simple, Pablo: there are many situations where there is no native search function (in Windows dialogues, for instance).

Hi Aleksander,

I don’t understand something  here. For what reason FS is going to invest time and money developing a function like insert + control + F , if the native  word function Control + F  works better?

Hi Pablo,

 

as far as I know, JAWS search (Insert+CTRL+F) in Word or all program windows except the web-like ones (browser, PDF) only searches for strings on the current screen. Therefore, CTRL+F works better there because by default, this function searches for the string in the entire document.

 

Best regards,

Aleksander

Betreff: Jaws not finding content in word 2016

 

Hi all,

The following problem is happening on 3 different computers running Jaws 18 last release on windows 10, and word 2016 office 365.

When I have a word document opened, and I press insert + control + F to find a string. When I press enter to start the find function, 90% of the times jaws says, string not found.

However I know that that string is there so I try to use the word find function, pressing control + F, then I press enter.

Yes, using the find function on word, I am finding strings that jaws  is not able to find.

What is happening here? Why the find function  in jaws is not working consistently?

Thanks for all,

Re: Disabling "copyright" symbol in Word 2016

Steve Griffiths
 


Hi Margaret,

 

There's two ways you can do this. First is easy but has to be done repeatedly, second is more long-winded but fixes it for good.

 

Easy way: whenever you do this and JAWS says "copyright", press Backspace once. When you press the right parenth key, Word changes what you've typed into the copyright symbol and JAWS echoes this. pressing Backspace immediately undoes the change.

 

More long-winded way: Press Alt, F, T to open the Options dialogue.

DownArrow to Proofing

Tab to AutoCorrect Options and press Enter to open the AutoCorrect dialogue

You should be in an edit area. Type (c), that's left parenth c right parenth

Tab to the Delete button and press it

OK out of both dialogues

You should find now typing (c) doesn't give you a copyright symbol at all.

 

Hope that helps,

Steve

Hello, group.

Whenever I type a document in Word 2016, and I number a line as -parentheses, the letter c, closed parentheses -, it always reads "copyright". It is a little annoying for me to keep hearing this. It does it automatically when I type in Word 2016; I am not inserting the "copyright" symbol from the list. Is there a way to stop JAWS from reading the "c" as "copyright"? Thanks. I am running Windows 8.1 with JAWS 16.

Re: Using JAWS to download book from Audible.Com

Hi,

 

You need to  download the audible  manager from there website, that will allow you to then download the book you have purchased.  I haven’t used it for ages since I use the audible app on my IPhone to listen to all my audible books since I find it very accessible and with lots of features. If you do use the audible manager though I think from memory it asks when you install it how you will listen to the file, it may have a victor stream option on there, if not I think you can just choose to download it directly on to your PC and then transfer  it manually to your victor stream from there.  As I said though if you’ve got an iPhone I’d definitely recommend trying the audible app, I don’t have an android though so don’t know if the app is on that or not

I just signed up for Audible.com, and purchased (free trial actually) my first book.  I see it on the Audible web site in my library, and a button to play it from there, at least I assume that is what the button does.

 

Instead, I want to download it into my laptop so I can transfer it into my Victor.  How do I download my book from Audible using JAWS?
