These changes are now on the
develop branch and the
accessibility preview branch has been removed. Please pull the latest
develop to check out the accessibility features.
The JUCE team is delighted to announce that a beta release of accessibility support in JUCE is now available on the new
accessibility feature branch: https://github.com/juce-framework/JUCE/tree/accessibility
Please use this forum thread to provide any feedback about the new feature.
Please also help us spread the word. Whilst we have links to a number of groups within the audio industry who we know are particularly interested in this new functionality, any feedback from developers and users who have previous experience with accessibility features would be very valuable.
Accessibility support will be part of JUCE 6.1 (so included within the scope of a JUCE 6 licence), where 6.1 will be released once the accessibility support has been thoroughly tested by the JUCE community.
This initial release of accessibility support targets macOS and Windows. Additional platform support will be evaluated following the initial release.
JUCE software built against these changes will be accessible by default on supported platforms so we strongly advise everyone to test how their products behave under VoiceOver and Narrator using this branch so there are no surprises when its released.
