If you like Sonic Pi and find FoxDot neat, you might really enjoy TidalCycles, my favorite of the bunch by far. For the HTML GUI, no work has been done to move this beyond a very basic and unsupported prototype. @samaaron Hi! I am not a Ruby fan however, and I prefer a more traditional Lisp or Scheme to Clojure. None of the platforms - Win, OS X, Linux - are second class citizens. Learn more. I dont have experience with qt development but maybe someone else can fix this, it's really not that complicated.. Have a question about this project? idea how Definitely not! use it perhaps will be able to take that kind of screen reader to use in One very attractive feature for blind users is that the coding can be done in a command window. #962 (comment). One short term approach would be to get the prototype web interface working again which I assume wouldn't suffer from such problems. I did not know about FoxDot. We use optional third-party analytics cookies to understand how you use GitHub.com so we can build better products.

I am working with a student and, as we can't find a screenreader that works with the RPi, he accesses it over ssh using Putty with the NVDA screenreader so if Sonic Pi could be accessed directly via the command line, that would be useful, although sonic-pi-cli is a step in the right direction. You can run Sonic Pi on desktop Linux. However, we They have nice interfaces, and you can do visuals in Overtone with Shadertone, a sort of ShaderToy for Overtone. I think it would be useful to have a sort of dictionary or comparison of the function of sonic pi, overtone (or other similar, like foxdot, etc) and supercollider. The command window is accessible to screenreaders and refreshable Braille displays, which means that a blind user can code in real time. to test and develop for better accessibility. openscad/openscad#674. Best Regards, Attila. I'd want to improve the accessibility situation for all three OS - Win / Mac / Linux. Also, too, no tts output from the Sonic Pi Window in that setup, so something is missing in SP.

I'm still pretty sure that it's not QScintilla's fault that accessibility doesn't work in Sonic Pi, but that we just don't setup Qt accessibility correctly in Sonic Pi's Qt configuration yet. windows, NVDA. and Ubuntu as well. never used linux myself but I do use windows with NVDA and I've used a What operating system and what accessibility enhancements for it are you using? We’ll see. Could you please describe your computer setup and the tools you use to make it accessible? Not least because finding blind users to test your implementation will be a challenge. On 4/9/16, Hanno Zulla firstname.lastname@example.org wrote: @alpha2013 Yes. What we need for Sonic Pi is developers who are familiar with the accessibility features of Qt (I'm not, but willing to learn) or a pointer to other Qt-based applications that are friendly to visually impaired users, so that we can learn from their code. This is reflected in your tutorials for Sonic Pi. The tutorial is great. You signed in with another tab or window. While it's possible to get all running together, it's another hurdle to pass. It was super easy to setup. I tried using Orca on Xubuntu and found it difficult to run. I'd love to understand what you do as a blind user so that I can have a similar setup to test with during development.

Blind users of Linux are definitely in the minority, and I would go as far as to argue that if you focus on Linux accessibility support first and forrmost, you will be wasting your time. However, we are aware @ogomez92 pointed out, quite rightly so, that accessibility on Linux is not a good quantifier for the level of screen reader access provided by an application in general. Baring the above in mind, I'd suggest that the version of QScintilla in use on master be kept at 2.10.2 or similar until the issues have been resolved for a couple of reasons: I should add that it's been a pleasure working with Phil so far & I'm thrilled that he's showing continued interested in making his component accessible. I am also an avid user of OpenSCAD in behalf of my students. Can you tell us about other open source software that works well for you and where the developers can learn a few tricks to improve Sonic Pi's accessibility? Also, I don't know how blind Linux users use their computers, so I have no idea how to test and develop for better accessibility. Thanks! Do you know any? Would it be better to get the existing code working or to remake the backend of the html interface? Hope some more blind folks might chime in, since i posted about sonic pi in a german blind music producers whatsapp group one hour ago. I hope it helps with accessibility. people who have some useful vision but who require a screen reader in certain situations may currently be able to use SP to a certain extent.
