Screenreaders for programming?


From: Laurie Kamrowski

Hi everyone!

I am taking some programming classes right now, and a method that I use to
help me study is by using a screen reader to help me focus on what I'm
reading as I go. (I have a TBI and focus is a massive problem for me.) The
problem is the screen readers that I have used either don't function well
with the site (runestoneacademy.com) or don't read the code correctly
(skipping " and - ), which is jarring.

I've used NVDA and a screen reader add on for chrome, but neither are doing

Any recommendations?

Thank you so much for your help!
