Listening to computer code

You need to check out this blog: OceanInsight – musings of a blind oceanographer.

Amy Bower is a physical oceanographer who I’ve had the pleasure to hear speak on several occasions. I mainly associate her with her work on the deep western boundary current and interior pathways in the North Atlantic, but she has worked on many other exciting topics. A while back I discovered her blog OceanInsight – musings of a blind oceanographer which is a fascinating read. In the post Jaws Goes to Sea she describes how she uses a screen reader to work on a computer, and gives examples of what it sounds like when she is reading emails or editing computer programs. Especially if you are coding yourself, but even if you are not, you need to go and check out her blog and that specific post!
