On the blind programming list, the question has been raised as to how a
blind user of a Java application can know whether it is supported by the
Java Access Bridge (JAB).  I think a JAB has to be installed for each Java
Runtime Environment (JRE), and some applications install their own,
private JRE rather than relying on one that has already been installed on
the system.

I do not know much about this, but have the impression that a JAWS script
could detect whether a JAB was currently available in a Java application,
since JAWS relies on a JAB for access to the application's user interface.
Can anyone suggest a script that reports whether a JAB is currently
available to JAWS?
