[jitsi-dev] [jitsi] Jitsi Accessibility (#116)


#1

Hey developers,

I can not use a braille display with Jitsi on Windows 7. Is Jitsi ready for this?

Java8u40 is ready for this: http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/204

Regards
Björn

The article you're referencing is for JavaFX, but Jitsi uses Swing. I don't know anything about screenreaders and Swing's support for them, but if it isn't working for you then it obviously doesn't.

I'm closing this for the time being as we quite simply don't have the resources to investigate this or doing any development on it. Sorry.

Hi Björn,

To give you a bit more context. Jitsi is not built using JavaFX as the
UI framework. JavaFX is more recent and as such provides more in the
area of accessibility.

I did a quick search on Accessibility support for Java. It turns out
that there is already some Accessibility support "out-of-the-box" for
Swing components. As described at
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/uiswing/misc/access.html.
However, it is quite hard to determine that as we do not use this kind
of accessibility software. (And I'm not sure how much the experience
might differ for various types of software.)

Can you determine whether it does not work at all, or that it does works
but (very) limited?

We need to leave the issue as closed, as JavaFX is not applicable to
Jitsi and it is far from trivial to migrate to JavaFX. It would be good
to know, though, what the state of current Jitsi is in this regard.

Kind regards,
Danny
