Wiki Markup

[15:25:43 CDT(-0500)] <travis_84> especially with touch gestures becoming mainstream, gesture programming with possible voice support sounds possible

[15:25:49 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> You may be interested in this PhD thesis that was published in 92... http://digitalassets.lib.berkeley.edu/techreports/ucb/text/CSD-93-726.pdf

[15:25:56 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> This guy is now at Oracle, but he is generally discouraged : P

[15:26:25 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> There is a little work at Microsoft in using the tablet form factor for some kinds of coding

[15:26:50 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> But it is mostly pretty simplistic stuff which produces lists of rules for actors in games to follow

[15:30:08 CDT(-0500)] <travis_84> hmm, I will add that to my reading lol. I think the first step would be to create a visual language to represent the programming functions and elements?

[15:30:46 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> travis_84 - it may well be easier to start with some kind of "visual intermediate", yes

[15:30:52 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> Especially if you are a sighted user yourself : P

[15:32:16 CDT(-0500)] <travis_84> True, at least once we have a visual context we have a place to start for the hearing only too

[15:32:29 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> Some other people who are interested in the project are Clayton Lewis, a professor here at CU, and T.V. Raman, a blind developer who is a research scientist at Google

[15:33:21 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> In talking to Raman, Clayton noticed an interesting idea he had, in treating elements of a non-visual interface as proxies for "queries" which you could say a sighted user runs automatically

[15:33:48 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> So he saw that Raman had made a system where he could play games like "Bejeweled" by use of these kinds of "queries"

[15:34:11 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> But an important part of the system is that the user could manage and edit this set of queries to suit their own use of the system for a particular task

[15:34:24 CDT(-0500)] <travis_84> wow, Raman sounds like a good person to talk to. thanks

[15:34:41 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> Raman is very cool - although very busy : P

[15:35:10 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> But he's probably the person in the world who knows most about this kind of system in practice, since he has to use them every day

[15:36:13 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> And after this, you could perhaps bind them to hot-keys so you could play the game at a reasonable kind of rate after you got used to it.... "Find the first jewel in the column to the right of the cursor scanning downwards that is blue", for example, could be one of these kinds of queries

[15:36:26 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> But you might not be able to find out what kinds of queries you wanted until you had played the game for a bit

[15:37:14 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> So, this kind of thing could eventually be the basis of a system for producing "code"... but so far, any work you do on this will be a world first (smile)

[15:38:48 CDT(-0500)] <travis_84> all this said, i do feel extremely under qualified... I am going for it anyway, I have been self taught and learn fast. This is definitely something I want to be apart of either way

[15:40:09 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> travis_84 - you are already a world expert on the subject (smile)

[15:40:28 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> It will be great to have you involved

[15:40:48 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> So, this project of Raman's using "last generation technologies" might have some ideas which can be plundered... http://emacspeak.sourceforge.net/emacspeak.html

[15:42:10 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> But of course emacs is based completely on the idea of streams of text characters as the ultimate abstraction for code... which ultimately isn't going to be good enough

[15:42:46 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> Still, it is in some ways the "Rolls Royce" of editors, and some people feel that it's even a possibly sane approach to try porting it to the web : P

[15:42:49 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> Such as sgithens here....

[15:42:51 CDT(-0500)] <travis_84> true

[15:43:08 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> Still, the world of even traditional web-based IDEs is extremely wild and woolly still

[15:43:33 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> There are several solutions emerging at once, but they are all pretty shaky even at best

[15:43:44 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> There is Bespin, which became "ACE"....

[15:43:47 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> There is "CodeMirror"

[15:43:55 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> And there is IBM/Eclipse's "Orion"

[15:44:24 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> All of them are text-based, and all of them have serious issues even just as text-based IDEs, let alone environments that would enable more interesting kinds of structured editing

[15:45:14 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> I worked on a project with CodeMirror recently, and discovered it doesn't even have API support for helping the user to write syntactically correct programs!!

[15:47:05 CDT(-0500)] <travis_84> IDE's like Netbean, and Dr.java from Princeton have been quite frustrating as well since it ignores keyboard focus for windows magnifier for those not so blind

[15:47:42 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> Almost all of these "baked-in" projects have no concern for accessibility at all

[15:47:54 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> So the web represents a really huge opportunity to improve the situation enormously

[15:48:23 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> Especially if we can create a kind of "open architecture" where end users can contribute and share their own accessibility tweaks and "queries"

[15:50:30 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> Here's a sample of Raman's writing style : P

[15:50:33 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> "On this theme, when once challenged by a proponent of a crash-prone but well-marketed mousetrap with the assertion "Emacs is a system from the 70's", the creator of Emacspeak evinced surprise at the unusual candor manifest in the assertion that it would take popular idiot-proven interfaces until the year 2070 to catch up to where the Emacspeak audio desktop is today."

[15:54:03 CDT(-0500)] <travis_84> hah

[15:54:08 CDT(-0500)] <travis_84> nice

[15:55:35 CDT(-0500)] <travis_84> the whole thing could be open like how games allow their games to be modded to fit the users preferences. code representations could be open to the user and how they feel it should be represented

[15:55:40 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> His "auditory icons" idea is pretty interesting

[15:55:53 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> Yes, I think that's a really great analogy

[15:56:04 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> If you've played WoW, for example, you've seen that this "aftermarket" is completely huge

[15:56:17 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> There's a giant bank of keystrokes, icons, and scripts that every expert player comes to rely on

[15:56:55 CDT(-0500)] <travis_84> I have and I did that

[15:57:06 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> To the extent that if you HAVEN'T customised the game in this way, you can't actually expect to become a top player

[15:57:09 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> ha, cool

[15:57:18 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> Thankfully I gave up once I got to level 60 (smile)

[15:57:19 CDT(-0500)] <travis_84> made macros to make keystrokes into single icons

[15:57:40 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> But I realised that I was going nowhere in the game unless I was prepared to devote really serious amounts of time to customising it

[15:58:08 CDT(-0500)] <travis_84> ya same

[15:58:34 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> But actually, now I'm playing "Skyrim" I am really missing the fact that I used to be able to have quick access to stuff

[15:58:40 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> Although this was essential in a game that wasn't "stoptime"

[15:58:57 CDT(-0500)] <travis_84> and well I think i could contribute to a real world 'guild" right?

[15:59:07 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> But still, Skyrim is clearly designed for the console market, where there ARE no key bindings

[15:59:37 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> Which is showing the kinds of ways that the move towards consoles and tablets is at least temporarily making things hugely worse for unsighted users

[15:59:48 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> I think you really could : P

[16:00:24 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> Another thing Raman is interested in is ways of making touchscreens "audibly responsive"

[16:00:44 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> So that as you brush your finger over them, you get little "bumps and ticks" indicating when you have moved into an area which is active in a certain way

[16:01:06 CDT(-0500)] <travis_84> agreed, with kinect for pc. coding is not limited to that either

[16:01:28 CDT(-0500)] <travis_84> think of a motion based coder

[16:01:39 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> the possibilities, of Tiberium, are limitless! : P

[16:02:10 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> But so far, all things being equal, losing access to keyboards has been a huge loss for most unsighted users

[16:02:46 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> And that input modality is a lifeline to all kinds of other users as well.... those that depend on non-analog "switches and sensors" of various kinds, like puffer switches

[16:04:00 CDT(-0500)] <travis_84> eye tracking based communicators

[16:04:33 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> Yes, could be great

[16:04:41 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> Can Kinect do eye tracking?

[16:04:49 CDT(-0500)] <travis_84> sorry excuse me for a sec brb

[16:05:31 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> Looks like it can, a bit : P
