I am looking for resources (software, studies, documentation) to help inform design decisions for making command line utilities accessible.

Most of the programs I work on are command-line utilities. Many are non-interactive, but the more complex ones are "TUIs" or terminal UIs.

These TUIs have features such as tabs, interactive navigation, progress bars, key bindings etc..

I am not familiar with adaptive software for terminals (is there an equivalent of a screenreader?) and therefore am not sure how these types of TUI features may impact users with vision or motor impairments.

  • Hi Nick, what do you mean about accessible? Most TUIs are quite accessible and customizable to improve accessibility (to some degree). Do you have any specific concern such as voice commands or are you talking in general? – Devin Nov 8 at 19:33
