Re: Anybody Know If Any Software Defined Radio Applications Are Accessible with JAWS?
Thanks, I’ll follow up on those links if you send them off list. I haven’t played with anything at all, just read a bit about it and talked with a friend of mine who doesn’t use screen readers. It sounds very interesting, and from what he told me, I don’t have to spend a fortune to get my feet wet.

Hi Evan. As you have determined, SDR software is not even remotely accessible for us. However, there are a couple of applications; SDR#, and HDSDR, that at least have lists of keyboard commands. In both applications, you can tune up and down the bands, key in frequencies directly, and easily change your band width. HDSDR is easier to set up. If you have the proper driver for your dongle installed, especially the cheaper ones from Newelec called RTL2832, you will hear white noise right after installation, and you can use F1, then scroll down to the list of keyboard commands. SDR# has a plugin that you can download that you have to install into the program that changes the architecture of the interface a little bit and provides a paltry little list of keyboard commands. The waterfall tuning spectrums, however, make quick access to active signals totally inaccessible for us, however. If you are curious, I can provide links to these different offerings off-list.
