Re: Flash card program/website?

Sally Kiebdaj

Hello all,

Thank you for the replies. My concern is that many websites and applications turn the "cards" into images instead of retaining the original text.

I do not want to need the OCR add-on every time I flip a card.

It is not just a matter of finding a flashcard site as there are countless numbers of them but to find one where both the card creation and card review sides are screen reader compatible.

As has been mentioned, iOS has several screen reader friendly options but there is little to know information out there for Windows (or Android, although that is a post for a different list).

Thank you,

This isn’t a Windows application, but I use Flashcards Deluxe on iOS. Would also be interested in a Windows/MacOS app though.

Hello list,

I sent a message several weeks ago asking for recommendations of accessible flashcard websites ore applications. I now cannot seem to find that message and got no replies. 

I am guessing now that the message never made it to the list and apologize if I am mistaken and this is a repeat. 

I am looking for something to help me study a foreign language, ideally something that allows me to create my own sets of questions and answers and then can be used to test me by checking an answer I type against the original question and answer set. 

If that isn't clear, I mean something that will not just show me in text form one side of a flash card and then show me the other but instead show me one side and ask me to type the other like with Duolingo, for example. 

Does anyone have experience with a website or application that works well with NVDA? 

I was toying a bit with quizlet but was then told to try Anki. According to the documentation Anki sounds like it would have keyboard commands for most functions and thus might be assumed to be somewhat accessible. However, when I install and run it, the window simply speaks "frame." 

If anyone feels like playing with it, I am curious if the complete inaccessibility is a quirt of my system, a shortcoming in my NVDA skills, or if this open source project is as absolutely inacccessible as it seems. 

Any suggestions would be appreciated!
