Re: [orca-list] Most accessible IDE for java

To make accessibility universal there are a couple of things that need to

1.  We need to make it part of the education system and start teaching it's
importance and how to do it as part of coding classes.  It is not taught and
therefore not even thought of by most developers.

I agree this is a major problem that needs to be solved.

2.  Make it easy if not almost automatic so that developers don't have to
spend extra time adding it.  Especially when using an IDE it should
automatically add at least some form of accessibility items even if it is
something silly like "button" for a button but atleast get something there.

Also, some tools reputedly check for it when compiling an application and warn
of missing accessibility information whenever this situation is detected.

This practice should be encouraged as well.
