Apologies’ for cross-posting, but this is a pretty big news.

Hi Nicolas,

You have no idea how exciting this news is for people across the globe.
I’m extremely glad that people at Oracle have decided to update Java Access Bridge. I purchased Windows 7 32 bit as well as Windows 7 64 bit specifically to continue to access Java applications.
I sincerely hope that resuming work on Java Access Bridge implies that more information will be exposed through the bridge that is usable by screen readers.
Things like foreground and background colors and alerts on different areas of the application being updated.
Access to Java applications is absolutely essential for working with enterprise based software.
I’m going to celebrate right now.
Will test the early release and report back

Thanks
Roopakshi from India

  Java Access Bridge 2.0.2, for which an Early Access release is
    currently available at http://jdk6.java.net/6uNea.html, is indeed
    aimed at providing support for Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit. We will
    provide more details as we get closer to our final release date, but
    in the meantime feel free to test this Early Access and provide
    feedback.

    

    Thanks,

          Hi
              Sailesh,
           
          I
              was speaking specifically to version 2.02 of the JAB that
              was posted to Early Access at the link I referenced below.
              I didn’t see any announcements about it posted to this
              list.
           
          Thanks.

          Sam,

              Bridge and Windows 7
           
          Hi Anders,

            

          
          What version of Java Access Bridge can I
            use If I have Windows 7 operating system on my computer
            (please send me information about 32 and 64-bit)? 
          

            The latest version of the Java Access Bridge - version 2.0.1
            - is not designed to install or work properly on Windows 7
            environments, nor on 64-bit environments.  There are reports
            of hand-installation working on 32-bit Windows 7 with
            security privileges turned off, but we haven't verified
            those.

            

          
          Will you still develope Java Access
            Bridge (I means that the newest version of Java Access
            Bridge is one year old)? 
          

            Oracle has made no announcements about a release date for a
            new version of the Java Access Bridge.  The bridge is
            something Oracle products utilize, and addressing the
            shortcomings of version 2.0.1 is important for Oracle as
            well.

          Anybody have any information on this? I’m
            assuming that there aren’t any assistive technologies on the
            market currently supporting the 64-bit JRE.
