  "abstract": "<p>Live coding environments that use text input and audio output have the potential to be accessible and expressive<br>\nfor Blind and Visually Impaired (BVI) people. However, little is known about their compatibility with the assistive<br>\ntechnologies BVI people use, including screen readers and braille displays, or the experiences of BVI live coders. To<br>\naddress this gap, we formed FiLOrk, a live coding ensemble made up of five BVI high school students at the Filomen<br>\nM. D&rsquo;Agostino Greenberg Music School (aka the Fil&rsquo;). We introduce the goals and open questions guiding FiLOrk and<br>\nreport initial findings from our experiences designing a learning environment and building a custom, collaborative text<br>\neditor,</p>",
