Hi. I am going to try to teach myself Inform7. For those who do not know, Inform7 is a programing language for writing Interactive Fiction games. I want to write these games. I have started reading the Inform7 handbook. It looks like I am going to have to type some stuff that I can not find on the Mac keyboard. I know there is a way to type it, I just don't know it. There is probably some keystrokes or commands. So, how do I type a single quote, a double quote and an opening and closing square bracket? Also, how do I indent paragraphs and how do I set how many spaces in a paragraph is indented? If you know how to do any of this from the braille display's keyboard using computer braille that would also be good. Also, if anyone has used Inform7 on the Mac with VoiceOver before, can they please contact me privately? Thank you.

What braille display are you using to do this?

You can get Inform from the Appstore. but I'm guessing you've done this already, and moving around the app is not that hard to doo. I use to code on Windows years back but sadly as I didn't keep doing it I've forgotten what to do now days so have to teach myself the code again. I am bringing this topic because I also know of a app you can get for the Mac that you can use to play the games you create, or others with. It's called Zoom IF interpritor - Google Search and is usable with VoiceOver. It reads the text with your System Voice and all the commands you know and love from IF games should be available in the app. You can open .z5 .z8 .z3 and others!
