Hadwen-Bennett, Alex; Sentance, Sue; Morrison, Cecily – International Journal of Computer Science Education in Schools, 2018
Programming can be challenging to learn, and for visually impaired (VI) learners, there are numerous additional barriers to the learning process. Many modern programming environments are inaccessible to VI learners, being difficult or impossible to interface with using a screen reader. A review of the literature has identified a number of…
