Product Enhancements
CA APM offers accessibility enhancements in the following areas:
  • Display
  • Sound
  • Keyboard
  • Mouse
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. These existing assistive technologies need two Java virtual machine (JVM)-related functionalities to provide access to programs written in JPL. The assistive technologies need the Java Accessibility support that is available from within the JVM. The assistive technologies also need a bridge between themselves in their native environments. The bridge has one end in the JVM and the other on the native platform. Therefore, the bridge is slightly different for each platform to which the JVM bridges. Sun is developing both the JPL and the Win32 sides of this bridge.
