Our team is redesigning an online course in order to make it accessible to blind learners. The course teaches computer programming, and currently uses Second Life (and the Linden Scripting Language) for some programming assignments. As a result, we are looking for an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that would be accessible to blind persons. We've done some research, but haven't found a Linden Scripting Language IDE that accepts keyboard-only input and can be used with screen readers. Does one even exist? Do you have any suggestions if one doesn't? I am hoping the wise ATHEN group might have some insights or suggestions for us. Thank you!
