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. For these existing assistive technologies to provide access to programs written in JPL, they need a bridge between themselves in their native environments and the Java Accessibility support that 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, so it will be slightly different for each platform it bridges to. Sun is currently developing both the JPL and the Win32 sides of this bridge.
