I would gladly join in, as I think it would much easier to teach blind students to use "
R" if the R studio IDE was accessible.

Subject: [BlindRUG] R Studio accessibility

Dear All

Would there be any value in a group of us writing to the developers of R Studio regarding its lack of accessibility and encouraging them to take steps to improve it?

It seems to me we are all using relatively difficult work-arounds - while the ideal would in fact be for an IDE like R Studio to be made accessible. It will not happen quickly and it will not happen if only one or two of us ask - but maybe if a few of us make an appeal then we might be in a better position a few years from now.

I am keen to hear what others think.
