Benefits of Dolphin Scripting

Dolphin Scripting offers many benefits to developers and the end user of your application. With Dolphin expertise, you can:

  • Simplify access with magnification, speech and braille in a single script, to serve clients with different levels of sight.
  • Create scripts for SuperNova Magnifier or Screen Reader editions. These can be extended to include other screen access methods if the users' visual needs change.
  • Simplify or automate processes to improve efficiency for end users.

Dolphin Scripting dovetails with Dolphin’s Mapping system. This unique interface is used to train and prioritise the Dolphin SuperNova Windows, UIA, MSAA and Shape detection systems.

Dolphin Scripting Support

Dolphin scripts are created using Lua: a non-proprietary, open source scripting language.

Lua is easily adopted by script writers. As a Lua scripter you will be part of a well-established community that is supported with online forums, Lua books and utilities.
