General purpose "evidence-based" language originally designed for blind progammers.

Quorum is a general purpose tool that we call an "evidence-based" programming language. It started as an interpreted language originally designed to be easier to hear through screen readers for blind or visually impaired users. Eventually, Quorum became a general purpose programming language designed for any user. Current versions compile to Java Bytecode and run on the Java Virtual Machine, similarly to JRuby, Jython, or Scala. Quorum 3.0 also compiles to JavaScript and can be run from the web.

Quorum has many features. It is object-oriented, but this is largely hidden from new users. It has a general purpose type system, with generics for containers (e.g., arrays, hash tables, lists). Quorum also has a standard library, which contains many additions to the language, like math libraries, containers, web components, and a game engine.
