Product Enhancements
 ASM offers accessibility enhancements in the following areas:
  • Display
  • Sound
  • Keyboard
  • Mouse
  • Custom Controls
The following information applies to Windows-based and Macintosh-based applications. Java applications run on many host operating systems, some of which already have assistive technologies available to them. To provide access to programs written in JPLF to these technologies, make a bridge. The bridge is between the technologies in their native environments and the Java Accessibility support. The support is available from within the Java virtual machine (or Java VM). This bridge has one end in the Java VM and the other on the native platform. The bridge is slightly different for each platform it bridges to. Sun is developing both the JPL and the Win32 sides of this bridge.
