Resources for Blind Programming

I have had the experience recently of having a student in CSE 335 who is blind. It was shocking to me how terrible the resources are for blind programmers, so we had to develop some solutions during the course. This page makes some of these solutions available for others to use. I will be added to this content as I have time.


  • Development Environments - Issues we dealt with for development environments
  • Working with GDB - Issues when using GDB for debugging
  • The CSpeech class - A class that enhances a wxWidgets application to support a blind developer
  • Audible Browser - A browser for UML diagrams for blind user
