Hello,

Does anyone know any online Javascript code editors or environments that
are accessible to a screen reader?

The big three, codepen, JSFiddle and CodePen are not.

I think the problem though is that the online text editor they use is not
accessible. Does anyone know how one could make a text editor like what is
on those sites accessible? The editor on GSuite follows the same design as
well.

Thanks,

Did you try Visual Studio community edition or Developer edition? They both support JavaScript, JSON, and many other languages in one accessible UI.

JS Bin is pretty workable from my understanding

Hi,

Although I don't use it anymore, I do remember that JAWS worked well with Komodo Edit, which is free. Probably worth downloading and taking it for a test drive.

Hello,
Sorry, I meant online javascript environments. To share code and view the
result in the same window.
JS Bin still has the not-so-accessible text editor. When I enter into the
edit field, I just hear "blank".
The one nice thing, I guess, is that I can hit enter on a line and go into
the edit field, but that line is blank in the edit field. I think it would
be better if the line populated in the edit field.
Thanks,

For the most part JSBin is pretty good. If you find any issues with
the main UI, file an issue in Github for it.
https://github.com/jsbin/jsbin

FWIW, Remy is super cool about merging PRs. I fixed a few
accessibility issues a while back and he was quick to merge them.

There are 3 open issues relating to accessibility right now that could
use some love.

As Brandon says, the text editor needs help - they're using
CodeMirror. CodeMirror also has an open repo as well. Definitely log
bugs: https://github.com/codemirror/CodeMirror
