Re: [orca-list] Accessibility of Ardour with Orca

can Ardour be used with Orca?
As far as I know: no.
If not, what would the developers have to change in the source code to make

there might be more elements which are inaccessible. It's one of those
cases where accessibility would practically mean rebuilding the whole

As a possible alternative: have you tried or even considered Reaper? I
am not sure about its accessibility under Linux, but it is usable with
screenreaders under windows and mac.

I hope that helps somewhat.

Best wishes,
