Description of App: 

TextMate brings Apple's approach to operating systems into the world of text editors. By bridging UNIX underpinnings and GUI, TextMate cherry-picks the best of both worlds to the benefit of expert scripters and novice users alike. (MacroMates.com Home Page)

TextMate is a simple yet robust text editor that supports a vast array of languages from simple plain text to HTML to ObjectiveC. An application that supports the SVN and Git repositories and supports bundling so you can add your own or other support for other languages or modified languages.

It has the usual set of features like other development tools such as syntax highlighting, auto-correction and code hinting and also has themes so you can style the highlighting the way you want.
Very lightweight and extremely robust.

Accessibility Comments: 

Absolutely flawless using VoiceOver. Everything is labelled correctly and very easy to navigate. I was in contact with MacroMates concerning accessibility and they added a feature that I requested, I know most of you here are totally blind, but having the caret tracking work in the latest build of TextMate was a great help for me and I imagine for many other partially sighted and Mac Zoom users.


The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

Other Comments: 

I have not tested every single feature of the program as of yet with VoiceOver. For example, I keep code hints turned off, but I'm certain they work with VoiceOver too if you like having them turned on. I am happy to help anybody looking to use this application get comfortable with it, though I sincerely doubt you'll need any help, it works straight out of the box.
