Accessible JS/PHP/HTML/CSS Editor

macOS and Mac Apps

Does anyone know an VoiceOver-accessible source code editor for macOS that supports JS/PHP/HTML/CSS? Something like Notepad++ under Windows? Also, it should support autofill or something to quickly look up JS/php functions, html tags etc...

Granted all my experience with it is on Windows, but Visual Studio Code from Microsoft should check all your boxes. It's free and they do a good job making it accessible.

Does VS code also exist for Mac and if so, is it well accessible? Otherwise, I'm searching for alternatives that work fully accessible on macOS with VoiceOver.

I suggest investigating whether TextMate suits your needs.

Hey there,
I know this seems overkill, but I believe XCode may have what you're looking for, and it's free.
It's like using a bulldozer to make a sandcastle, but...

Thank you for your replies. I now downloaded TextMate and will try it very soon. I think xCode is really overkill for my needs, maybe VS Code could work.

Pretty sure Xcode doesn't support web languages, you'd want TextMate or VS Code instead :)
