The State University of New York system is requiring that all colleges make sure that the resources professors utilize in the classroom are accessible to all students. As part of the new compliance standards, we (the institution) need to make sure our online resources, software, videos, PowerPoint’s, etc. all follow the best practices of ADA compliance and where applicable have a VPAT file to explain how the product complies.
Some general information can be found here.
I have noticed that the default coloring in Processing is not accessible for color blind students, especially red/green ones. (variable types are red, method return type is green) for example in the syntax highlighting.
Is there any chance Processing will become compliant in the near future? Otherwise I will be forced to utilize Netbeans IDE as they are the second most popular IDE we use here for the successive courses in the IT program.
