Re: Looking For A Blind Programmer RU1



I am not a programmer, but there is a programming language for the visually impaired now. It's called Quorum and it runs on something called Netbeans. I get the best of both worlds. Not only do I get a talking computer program system, but I am also a beginner, which is who this is designed for.

I would start, not for asking for help, but by asking how the blind learn programming. Google the question and ask the services for the blind, including AFB. There are services for the blind all over the world. You haven't said what you have done to get started. That's called "paying your dues". Not until you can show that you have made good efforts and ask good questions should you be asking for help here. And perhaps this is not a good place; it is more for users than techies.

Yes, hoping to get some tricks of the trade and some pointers on how to use assistive tecknology to write and compile and execute code on a PC.

I know there are some out there and they are writing programs but I have found that finding one that is willing to discuss that knowledge to be as illusive and scares as the alleged Hen's Teeth.

I jus need a little help with the macanics and proceedures.

I know they are there, I was one, exept I used a mainframe, that does age me I know, but I do know the concept and the programming languages are not that different from what I used in the time of double floor ice cooled mainframes, that only had half the computing power and memory that the personal computer sitting on my desk has.

I just need that how to guide .

Anybody feel like talking about yur work?

I am a willing listener and will appreciate the knowledge.
