Yes, probably.

Are you talking about the fact that C/C++ uses names of functions/methods
with more words concatenated written with lowercase which are read as
strange words by Jaws?

I think C/C++ are the best for what they can do, but I saw that they are
very hard to learn, and not very productive.

Hi, I agree. Visual Basic is like plain english, but then again that's what
basic was designed for, to be a beginner's language. I personally can't
stand C++ because of how the code is written. JAWS seems to speak it as
garbage, unlike Visual Basic. Never even looked at PHP, but have looked into
Asp .Net. I'm also quite interested inC# as well, but never really played
with it. But C/C++ just doesn't cut it for me, sorry. Just my £0.02 worth.

Hey,

I am from Zimbabwe. I would say that here for the desktop apps C++ and
Visual Basic seem to dominate. This is better explained by the fact that
Visual Basic is easy to learn while C++ is favored for its cross-platform
nature.

As for the Web, almost every hosting company (about 70% of them with
headquarters in South Africa) use php. In fact, this explains why I had to
learn PHP in the first place: if you do not know PHP, your chances of
hosting a dynamic page here is next to nil. However, one private company
(Ecoweb) recently started advertising that it is now considering hosting
Active Server Pages, but still in line with your question, PHP still is
dominant as the company also hosts it.

Thanks!
