Cannot edit fields in Java Access Bridge

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • CPU:
      x86
    • OS:
      windows_7

      Description

      The user reports the following:

      "ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      version 6.1.7601

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :

      First of all I will say thank you for a good feature. With Java Access Bridge, I can access Java-applets with my screen reader - it is nice.

      Next I think that I have found a bug.

      My screen reader does not succeed in getting access to the function allowing me to enter addresses of websites where Java 7 Update 51 must omit activation of the recently introduced safety restrictions.

      I do the following:
      1. Open the Java control Panel (normally, I do that via the path "C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\javacpl.exe")
      2. Press left CTRL-key plus TAB, until I come to the security tab
      3. Press the TAB-key three times, until my screen reader say "click here to edit site list"
      4. Press down arrow one time so my screen reader say "add a site to the list"
      5. Again I press one time on the TAB-key so I come to the "add sites button"
      6. When I press enter on the button, a table view opens, and with my screen reader, I can not find the edit field.
      When I press on my TAB-key, I only can find different columns and rows, and nothing more.

      I will be very happy, if oracle please can take a look on the challenge with the accessibility and try to correct it in an upcoming version of Java Runtime Environment or Java Access Bridge.

      My screen reader is JAWS for Windows version 15.0.6025."
