Im trying to make a Help box accessible, this box is a NDialog(Novell Console API) which actually extends JDialog.This box has some buttons & a pane(or panel)which displays some text taken from an HTML file. Now my problem is when the cursor is brought to the content area( i.e., text) it is not reading out the text in it, it doesnt even get the focus, . Any ideas?..anything I can do with JHelp?

Please don't post the same message to more than one forum. You obviously expect to read more than one forum - so do the people who might answer your question. The other thread(s) is/are now closed, all replies to this one.

Where is the Novell Console API?
What is JHelp?
Where is your code?

Is being accessible enough to make your buttons etc. talk? What tool are you using to interpret their accessibility? IBM's Self-Voicing Kit is one example.
I agree. Here's the link:
