Re: using spss with screen readers?

Enes, the problem with that is that NVAccess is correct in this matter. It's not always the developers of NVDA who are at fault. That's like saying that it's NVAccess' fault for me not being able to use GTK applications, when it's clearly neither NVAccess' or Gnomes' fault, since GTK isn't designed to run on Windows anyway. I wish it was possible but it's not. If the developers are unwilling to provide a fix, or are unable to provide a fix, then theirs nothing you can do. Making a program accessible is usually not a one-sited issue where the developer(s) of the screen reader just make it happen; it's usually a two-sited issue where the developer(s) of the screen reader and the developer(s) of the app work together to expose, and take advantage of, the accessibility APIs provided by the operating system and by 3rd parties. There are, of course, those rare circumstances where the developer(s) of the app (or of the apps' GUI toolkit) expose accessibility aPIs, but the screen reader does not recognize those APIs, or does recognize them but is unable to interact with them; in those circumstances, it then becomes an issue between NVAccess and NVDA, or whatever screen reader your using. However, since SPSS is a Java package, it's not NVAccess' fault for not making the app accessible, nor is it IBM's fault; rather, its either your fault,for not following the appropriate procedures for enabling both the 32- and 64-bit JABs, or it's Oracles fault for breaking the JAB. I suspect, however, that the fault lies with you, and neither NVAccess, IBM, or Oracle, for failing to follow appropriate instructions and procedures for enabling the Java Access Bridge. I have written them below for a quick reference; try these, and I hope they work for you.

  1. Download the 32-and 64-bit JREs at either http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/ … 48532.html (version 9) or http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/ … 33155.html (version 8). Alternatively, install the full 32-and 64-bit JDKs at
    http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/ … 48520.html (version 9) or http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/ … 33151.html (version 8).

  2. If installing the JREs, simply install them as normal. If installing the JDKs, ensure that a public JRE for both are installed.

  3. After the installation of both versions, open command prompt and navigate to the directories for both, and type 'jabswitch /enable', without the apostrophes. Once done, restart your screen reader and all should work fine. If not, continue to the next steps.

  4. If SPSS is not immediately accessible, copy all the files listed for both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of either or both the JREs and JDKs at https://docs.oracle.com/javase/accessbr … /setup.htm to their appropriate directories.

HTH.
