[isabelle] make Isabelle accessible?



Dear educators in the Isabelle community,

Despite substantial progress over recent years, access to higher
mathematics is still a non-trivial challenge for blind individuals.

For understandable reasons, Isabelle and similar software is not
accessible. However, accessibility seems in reach, because
Isabelle/jEdit could use theJava Access Bridge [1] and Isabelle/VSCode
could benefit from respective accessibility features [2]. And there are
plans for further development [3,4], which could be in line with
establishing accessibility.

Is there somebody in the community, who would be interested to
collaborate with IIS [5] in investigating possibilities to make Isabelle
accessible eventually?
