Re: state of the list as I know it at this time ...

I found some correspondence from a previous discussion about a FAQ for

Here is the list that I would like to see...

Name of programming language and version #:  For what types of
applications is this language best suited and why is it better than any
other language for those applications.

I have a feeling that there are far more programming languages than
necessary and I can't understand why we continue to re-invent the wheel.

More, familiar questions.

Jamal

Is there a tutorial on using Eclipse with a screen reader?  Are scripts
available?  How about Delphi development?

What language should I use for web site development?  What content
management system is most accessible?  What wiki?

What are tips for managing indentation in Python with a screen reader?

How do I know what is a good layout for controls on a GUI form?  Are
there tools to help with this??

If I want to develop cross-platform, accessible programs, what language
and/or tools should I use?
