There was also an EU sponsored project a few years ago called TEDUB.  I
remember evaluating it at the time, but I'm not sure what the current state
of it is.

Andreas Said:

I spoke online to Alasdair King not all that not terribly long ago,
and as far as I know, no one is working on Tedub at the moment.
However, Alasdair did build a UML tool specifically for the blind as
part of his dissertation, which I'm sure he would be willing to email
if someone asked (He sent a copy to me).  If folks are interested, I
might be able to get Alasdair to post it (or let me post it).

Nick,
 Have tried EA 7.1 with Jaws, Window-Eyes, and System Access and can't
 seem to navigate the application with any of them.

 Nick,
 Tried eA with Jaws 9.0 and you're right about it being quite
 non-accessible there. will try it with WE or System Access to see.

 Hi.

 Check out Enterprise Architect. www.sparxsystems.com if I remember
 correctly.
 Enterprise architect is very accessible with some screen readers.
 Hal/Supernova is fine, the last time I tried it with Jaws it didn't have
 a hope but if your using a good screen reader EA is my tool of choice
 for UML.

 Cheers.
 Nick.

 All,
 I know this question has been asked from time to time on this list but
 I'm hoping for any recent updates that anyone is aware of. This week, I
 started as tech lead for a new development project which will require
 considerable documentation and reviews. I am hoping to find a tool which
 will allow me to convey ideas and design structures in the form of
 diagrams such as UML.

 I'd like a tool which will accept some form of text input or XML input
 and produce various diagrams. I have the latest copy of AT&T Graphviz
 (version 2.18) and it is very powerful but Graphviz doesn't come with
 any templates specifically aimed at producing UML style diagrams. It can
 likely be done but if there is something else already out there which is
 accessible, that would even be better.

 Thoughts???
