Now that Java has been released under the GPL, how isaccessibility at least in GNOME?g According to the COPYRIGHT file in the Debian openjdk-6-jdk package (contributed by Ubuntu developers), the Java access bridge is included. I haven't, however, tested whether it works or hwat configuration is required to use it, since I don't have any Java applications installed, certainly not any GUI applications. However, work on Java accessibility has been ongoing since the mid 90s, so it should be a very mature and reliable technology by now. Any remaining issues would be in the interaction with Orca, and these, I am confident, will be sorted out.
Thanks. I will investigate the Java approach and cross my fingers that accessibility has improved since I last worked in that environment.
