Java Swing/Accessibility

My university project involves creating ACCESSIBLE Java Swing applications for visually disabled people who require the use of a screenreader, on the Windows platform.

\\\'Accessibility&\\\' can be defined as \\\"the successful access to information and use of information technology by people who have disabilities\\\". In this case, blind people who use screenreaders to access a computer. Screenreaders use text-to-speech to read software aloud to people who are blind - I am using the JAWS screenreader for this project.

In Java, accessibility in this sense is achieved by using the Java Accessibility API introduced by Sun.

This project does not involve creating a program/application from scratch, but altering the source code of an existing application I have found which at the moment is NOT accessible (i.e. people who use screenreaders cannot use it). By \\\'altering the code\\\' I mean implementing the Java Accessibility API on the code, for example just implementing the Accessible interface may solve a problem.

The problems I need solving include providing shortcuts for menu items, adding mnemonics, etc. However, I am not all that familiar with Java Swing programming and don\\\'t have the time to learn. If a problem cannot be solved, I just need to know why, as the main purpose of this project is to EVALUATE the Java Accessibility API.

The second deliverable I require is a simple program which allows me to record whether a Java Swing component (button, check box, combo box, etc) for a particular application is accessible or not. I need a facility to link this program to a database where the information will be stored, and a way to create and print a report from the information entered into the form. I already have an outline of what I require, it just needs to be implemented.

The software you will require is just the Java application which needs to be altered, called jEdit. I will then test it with a screenreader.
