jabswitch command is a utility program that enables the Java Access Bridge to be loaded by the JDK on Windows platforms. The Java Access Bridge is used by Assistive Technologies to interact with Java Accessibility APIs of the Java SE platform. To have any effect, the assistive technology must support the Java Access Bridge.
This command creates or updates a file named
.accessibility.properties, in the user's home directory. When selecting the
-enable option, the file is populated with the information needed to load the Java Access Bridge. This file is then read and used in accordance with the specification of the Java SE
java.awt.Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit() API, on initialization.
Note: This command is only provided with JDK for Windows.
