darking Posted March 17, 2018 Share Posted March 17, 2018 Hi guys! I've just signed up here and I hope I'm not posting this topic in the wrong forum and such. I am a blind programmer who'd like to use an automation tool to simplify some things for myself or implement accessibility for some things that are not accessible by no other means (like mouse click in a certain place). Well, I've tried both AutoIt and AutoHotKey in the last few days and I can certainly say that whoever has a programming background like me would be repulsed by AHK syntax! Beside that, I looked at the function reference and it covers my needs way better than AHK. And let's not forget the UDFs. I only have an issue with the AutoIt's implementation of GUI that I didn't have this problem with AHK when I tested it: I'm not sure my guess is correct or not but I guess AutoIt uses a large sleep time in its GUI message loop. This might not be an issue for the sighted users but for someone who uses screen readers they have major performance issue with the GUI. To be mor specific: An AutoIt GUI lags the screenreader when we're trying to navigating using the"TAB" key because the screenreader needs to get its information from the windo. While AHK GUIs ran smoothly. I'd really like to continue using AutoIt but this is a major problem for me. Is there anyway it could be fixed? Or, Is there any beta version (or alternative version) that doesn't have this problem? Or, Is there any hope of this being fixed in the near future? Looking forward to your replys!
