I’m currently working with musicians and programmers who use screen-readers to interact with computers. I’ve been testing out a lot of live-coding languages and finding various barriers:
- Custom editors with bad screenreader support
- Complex install paths
- Lots of noise in text design.
I’m currently researching the question: “What would a programming language for live coding look like when the main interface is a screen-reader or braille display.”
I’m not suggesting we need something new, but I’m open to the idea. I would be curious to hear if anyone has experience of screen-readers and live-coding.
