accessablitty with open office and screen readers.

Kevin Cussick
Hello,

I have posted more than once about Ia2 support in open office.

I use another program called jarte it knows that you are running a
screen reader,  I wonder if there is a way that open office can do this
as well and then switch all the access features on for you download the
access bridge for you and switch on the accessibility features so we
could just download the program run the exe file and it would do the rest.

I don't know how window's sets or if it does set a flag so open office
does know that there is a screen reader running but Jarte does know
about it and says it is switching accessibility features on so my
thought was if this program can do it can we not have this as well.

Thanks I am not complaining just asking if this could be done.

With IA2 (work in progress), OOo will detect a running screen reader.

But there won't be any changes to the current/old JAA based
solutionwhich will go once we have IA2.

Even if we did that one change (detecting the screen reader), we
wouldn't download and install java+bridge, but only turn on the check
box implicitly.
