Program-L

Hosted by Listserv

Program-L: Click here to subscribe

Description Programming.
PROGRAM-L is a highly specialized emailing list, intended to serve as a conduit through which blind and visually impaired programmers can exchange ideas, strategies, and advice. The purpose of PROGRAM-L is. 1. to discuss the visual aspects of application design which may be a cause of concern to a developer with no useful vision. Examples of such concerns include: ergonomic yet aesthetically-pleasing screen layout, optimal control size, etc, to provide sound coding tips which would make life easier for a blind person, such as setting the focus to the first logical control on a form so that a screenreader will read its label (provided it has been properly positioned.) 3. to discuss and suggest effective and productive practices for the development lifecycle. 4. to provide hints and tips on how best to access the visual IDE with speech or Braille. (Example: in VB4, to go from one control on a form to another, bring up the properties of any control with F4, go to the top of the property listbox and single click on the graphic to the right of the listbox heading which will bring up a combo box from which you can make your selection. PROGRAM-L will be totally unmoderated unless it degenerates into vitriol and anarchy! You are, however, implored to become familiar with your mail reader so that: A. when appropriate (e.g. "I agree" comments), you can reply privately rather than to the list as a whole; B. you do not quote unnecessary and unwanted text from previous messages; C. you make your subject header relevant to what you are talking about. D. The format should be language/version followed by topic. For example, "VB4: USING THE DEBUG WINDOW"; and E. you must leave your personal screenreader agenda behind you! It should be obvious why the subject header format is important but just to spell it out, it will aid sorting and the reliable use of the delete key. Whilst it is expected that the majority of people will be using either VB, VC++, VJ++ or Delphi, the list is not restricted to only these, although any additional ones should have a strong visual content; ie it is not the purpose of the list to be interested in DOS-based environments. Although some of these rules may seem a little authoritarian, the aim is to keep the list in focus and usable, with the help, courtesy and foresight of its subscribers. So, if you have an interest in or are actively involved in GUI application development, please join and see what happens; even if you don't find it of use to yourself, you may be able to help someone else who is struggling to keep a job.
