Arduino software accessibility overview by OS

The Arduino software is used to write a "sketch" - basically a script - compile it, and send it to your Arduino board. It is also used to receive data from the Arduino board in the form of the Serial Monitor. Here is a download link for the software and an overview of making it accessible.

Software Setup

If you are using a screen magnifier:

No adjustments needed. You may like the Arduino O&M post for more details on the smaller parts of the board.

If you are using a screen reader:

  • If you are using OS X, VoiceOver has been reported to work with the Arduino Integrated Development Environment (IDE) without modification. 
  • If you are using Windows, see this post about setting up the software on Windows
  • If you are using Linux, the Windows setup post may be helpful but we do not have further details at this time.
