Inclusion Code is an accessible editor that allows you to easily create Markdown documents or HTML content. Once in the editor, you can either write the corresponding codes manually, or use the Insert Menu to generate them automatically.
The Inclusion Code interface is a simple one with menu bars, which uses the standard Windows controls, making it accessible to screen reader programs and braille displays used by blind people.
When Inclusion Code starts, a window will appear with several options that we can select to open the editor. They are:
If HTML is selected, the editor will open in a blank screen, where you can start inserting the HTML tags codes.
If Markdown is selected, the editor will open in a blank screen, where you can start creating a document using Markdown markup tags.
Selecting Exit will exit the program.
Markdown Editor Mode
This documentation is the help for the Markdown editor option, there is also other help available with the documentation for the HTML editor.
The Markdown editor mode in Inclusion Code makes easier the document creation process by automating Markdown tags. The user selects the desired element from the Insert Menu and the program will generate the corresponding special characters and copy them into the editor. So content can be created in a very short time, without necessarily having to know Markdown.
Also, since the tags can be generated automatically allows the user to learn the different Markdown special characters. Markdown is a markup language that makes it easy to format text using a series of characters in a particular way. Initially, it was designed to produce texts whose destination would be the web more quickly and easily than if we were directly using HTML. But we can also use it for any type of text, regardless of its destination, including the creation of documents.
We recommend using the Markdown editor mode in Inclusion Code to:
- As a Markdown learning tool.
- To quickly create Markdown tagged content and copy and paste it into web publishing tools such as Wordpress, among others.
- Create Markdown documents that integrate headers, lists, links, among others, and export them as a Word document and basic Power Point presentation from the same program.
