Re: [platform-swt-dev] SWT_AWT and Accessibility

Can you confirm that it is working properly running a small Swing only example?  If so, please create a bug report with a stand alone snippet.

[platform-swt-dev] SWT_AWT and Accessibility

Hi All,

Im trying to find out if the SWT_AWT bridge allows accessibility data to
flow from Swing components back to SWT and out to Accessibility

I have an eclipse application that uses swing for many views. The SWT_AWT
bridge is used to allow the swing panel to be embedded in the views.

Our client relies on Jaws a screen reader application.

In Swing we would call the method getAcessibleContext().setName()  or
setDescription()  on any swing component. This provides the details the
screen reader needs
to have to work properly.

So far my intial attempts at making this work within our eclipse plugin
have failed. Our SWT components / frames work perfectly.

Does anyone know :

a) is accessiblity supported in swing panels via SWT_AWT?

b) if not is there a best practice work around?
