Workshop: Typical problems of beginners in programming

Presented by Peter Leck√Ĺ

The author of the workshop will introduce some frequent problems in programming caused mainly by blindness to participants. These problems will be analysed and solutions good enough for communication with sighted teachers / colleagues will be searched for.

Examples of problems:

  • How to design a graphical user interface? This is not an easy task, especially for totally blind people. Lazarus (an integrated development environment for free Pascal) will be used to design the user interface usable also by sighted users (there are no overlapping user interface components).
  • How to read logs and other outputs containing big chunks of unimportant data? Screen reader users with speech synthesis are sometimes in bad situations because logs and other outputs from applications often contain big chunks of data like time stamps, etc. Some possibilities how to read these outputs will be explored.
