There's Visual Basic 6, which is somewhat similar to other versions of
Basic, but many folks will tell you to forget about it and move on
since it is old technology.
There's also PureBasic, but it is nothing like the original Basic that
you may be used to.
Personally VB6 works fine for me, and VB6 works very well with JAWS
(even though I'm an NVDA user).

I am totally blind 53 years old guy from the island of Malta. In the past
especially during the dos era I was used to programming using the
GW-Basic. Now recently I decided to just start over again in programming
just for pleasure of programming. I have the following difficulties, which
I highly appreciate if you help me to just getting me started in the right
My primary goal is to create functional utilities. So here are my
1. Which are those most user friendly programming languages for us
the blind to choose from Currently I’m using Jaws as a screen reader.
From where I can get user guides written from the blind perspective for
that particular recommended programming language in electronic format.
And from where I can download the necessary programming tools for that
particular language to getting started?
Are there any mailing list specific for that particular language where
also blind users participates?
Lastly, is there someone out there who is willing to tutor me by email?
Your feedback is highly appreciated.
