I was wondering why Joshua mentioned OSX specifically in his message, then finally twigged that I had claimed to search for an accessible code editor with a string that included "osx". I don't know if that's what I actually searched on or not, but SAS Studio works on both Windows and OSX. Sorry for the confusion, I keep looking for freeware audio tools and am careful to specify OSX in my queries. I must have automatically typed it in.

OSX code editors may not work with JAWS since they would be Mac based and would require VoiceOver. With NotePad++, you may need to install the Plugin Manager along with the PHP Automation. There's also a HTML Tag plugin and notepadtable (for table creation) plugin you may want to consider. There's other plugins available for other programs.

But if you don't want to install plugins, try brackets.io, it's what all the cool kids are using now. Here's a video on its use with JAWS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3aGVLHrdCI

The further you get into coding, the more you may want to consider Linux as a platform. Some things just happen much faster on Linux than they will on PC. Try joining the BlindCS (Blind Computer Science) listserv on nfb.org. There's a lot of coders on that listserv who would give you great recommendations.

I personally do not know the answer to Shankar's question, but I thought Google might. I got a lot of partial matches to my query of "osx code editor that is compatible with jaws," with "jaws" being both one of the most important parts of the query and one of the most omitted from results. I did find this however: http://www.sas.com/en_us/home.html

I don't know anything about this editor, this Google query response was the first time I have heard of it. Here's a quote from their documentation:

"SAS Studio 3.1 has been tested against the accessibility standards for electronic information technology that were adopted by the U.S. Government under Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (2008 draft proposal initiative update). It was also tested against Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 levels A and AA, part of the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C). For more information about the accessibility of this product, send e-mail to <EMAIL REMOVED> or call SAS Technical Support.
For best results, use JAWS with Firefox on Windows 7 and VoiceOver with Safari on OS X."

Just for a lark, I opened their home page in Chrome, opened the developer tools, and ran the aXe accessibility analyzer. aXe found 19 violations, 13 of which were "links must have discernable text". The rest were color contrast and video elements missing captions and audio descriptions. Physician, heal thyself!
