Description h.elashhab 2016-10-09 08:12:00 UTC

I'm a blind programmer who tried to use Netbeens. 
I found the IDE unaccessible with any of the 2 most widely used/popular (and also the best) screen readers (JAWS, and NVDA). 
example of what wasn't accessible: everything.. starting from the installation process, till the editor, and navigating in the IDE to create/open  a project, etc. 

I just wanted to point that out and I hope you can enhance that in the future 

Thank you so much for your great and continuous efforts
