accessibility issues on version 16
« on: November 06, 2016, 06:26:42 pm »
hello,
i'm a visually impaired programmer, and i'm using Code::blocks as my ide
in version 16, i've saw some accessibility issues, which i tell you and i want you to help me, because i don't want to look at screen, that lead my eyesight to become more lower
first, in project options, in compiler settings, in compiler flags when you turn things on or off, that listbox was accessible, which is not accessible now, and when i use (root jaws to pc) of my screen reader, it can't focus on that list
about root jaws to pc, it is a feature which is implemented in jaws, that helps you to somehow use mouse with your keyboard
second, the editor at least, is not accessible at all to NVDA users, but somehow it is accessible for jaws users
some of my friends are using NVDA screen reader, and they can't work with cb at all
3, new project window is not accessible, i have to use root jaws to pc to focus on the listbox and select my project type
4, the error list is not accessible to nvda users, also i have to use root jaws to pc to access it
5, same with callstack list when i'm debugging my applications
programming is a way to go, not a way to go into

Which os are you using? Which wxWidgets library 2.8 or 3.x?
Which is the previous version of C::B had no such problems?

Most of the thing you're complaining about hasn't changed much recently.
(most of the time I ignore long posts)
[strangers don't send me private messages, I'll ignore them; post a topic in the forum, but first read the rules!]

hello,
the previous version was version 13
the build was official build, i think wxWidgets was version 2.8, i'm not sure
although i'm using latest wxWidgets (version 3.1) for my applications and the controls are standard controls on windows
