Although the name of the program is SVGDraw01, this is not a posting about
SVG. Instead, this is a posting about making it possible for blind people
to communicate with the rest of the world through the use of the
mathematical concepts embodied in the Cartesian Coordinate System.
Version 0.0.20 of my drawing program for blind users is now posted at:
http://www.austincc.edu/baldwin/SWT-SVG/SVGDraw01.zip and is available for
There are several new features in this version, including the addition of
the Vector as a primitive shape type. The new features are highlighted at
the beginning of the user instructions, which are attached to this message.
To use this free program and begin creating drawings of your own, you
simply need to download the zip file using the link that is provided above.
Next, you need to extract all of the material from the zip file into an
empty folder being careful to preserve the directory tree structure. Don't
extract into the root directory. One user has reported problems accessing
the Help file when the contents of the zip file were extracted into the
Execute the file named RunSVGDraw01.bat to run the program. You may get a
warning that the program came from an unidentified source. Only you can
decide whether to ignore the warning and run the program, or to cancel out.
It is not necessary for you to have Java or any other special software
installed on your computer to run this program. You should even be able to
extract the contents of the zip file onto a USB flash drive and run the
program on any Windows system, Version XP or later, with 32-bit or 64-bit
hardware. Of course, you don't have to use a USB flash drive, I mention
that simply to emphasize the flexibility that you have with the program.
When the program starts, you will land on Home Base from which you can
press F1 to open the help file, or select any of the actions provided by
the menus. Instructions for opening the menus are printed on Home Base.
Alternatively, you can simply open the file named SvgDraw01.Instructions.htm
in your browser and read the instructions without running the program. As
mentioned above, a copy of the instruction file is attached to this message.
