PyReader is a Visual Studio Code extension that specializes in increasing accessibility for Blind and Visually Impaired programmers using Python.
Prior to Use
To use PyReader, ensure that both Python and Node.JS are installed on your machine. Ensure that you run npm install in a PowerShell console to update and install all Node.JS packages, which are required to run Visual Studio Code extensions.
Download PyReader on the Visual Studio Code Extension Store. If you are a beta tester, find the appropriate vsix file for your operating system and consult this link for further instructions.
Ensure that Python file of choice is open and focused in the VS Code IDE.
Run the command "PyReader" from the Command Palette (Ctrl+Shift+P by default).
An HTML outline file should automatically open in the VS Code IDE.
If desired, select a line in the HTML outline to automatically jump to that declaration in the original program.
