Some questions about Java programming on the Mac

macOS and Mac Apps

I was wondering if anyone has ever tried to code in java on the mac. If you have, what are some of the accessibility problems you have incountered? I am taking an AP computer programming class, and I was wonder how java works with VoiceOver.

Hi, This is definitely possible with Eclipse.
You want to start out by looking at all the keyboard shortcuts available.
These will save you lots of interacting work with VO and they are sometimes - for example - the only way to get to the editor windows.
I am talking about plain Java programming. GUI designer plugins are - from what I know - inaccessible all together.
You always want to use the latest Eclipse version.
