Hi Mario,

There is nothing specific at this time and we are unlikely to start looking at accessibility seriously until next year.

Can you maybe point to bugs and/or share with us specific issues (and
pain points) yet unresolved?

Hi Michael,

Accessibility has been on and off the radar for OpenJFX for quite a while
now.  Some preliminary work was done, but a final implementation and API was
never reached.  Further, the people who were working on it either left the
company or left to work some place else.  The thing that makes accessibility
difficult is that it is platform specific, has a big API and touches many
different component areas.  If you think about it, in the case of a visually
impaired user, accessibility is presenting a widget system to be navigated
that is independent of any output.

Although nothing is official, we are looking to deliver accessibility in
JDK9.  If something is ready earlier, it is possible that it could appear in
an earlier release.

Thanks for being so patient with us.

I have the following question:
Does javafx support or plan to support accessibility?
Another question is: if it is planned, then for what release?
