Programming is practical, however, with a text editor like TextPad or
NoteTab. In fact, I have personally developed a text editor called
TextPal, using the Ruby language and wrappers for the WxWidgets GUI
library (which produces accessible controls unlike other
libraries). It is fully keyboard accessible and offers almost every
feature I’ve found in a text editor (I compared many), and
does so in a
manner intended to maximize usability by blind persons.
For anyone interested, the installer for TextPal, a free, open source
editor is available at the following direct download address:
It may be easily uninstalled as well.
Under Windows, Ruby console mode utilities work well with a screen
reader. These include irb, ri, and gem.
wow. it’s loaded complete indeed. I see 3900+ loc in there. Is that all
You are cool.
