Hi All,
I have a text field, combo,radio button and a checkbox in the Form Editor.
All the fields are not editable. Therefore,

text.setEditable(false)
combo.setEnabled(false)
checkbox.setEnabled(false)
radioButton.setEnabled(false)

As a result, text field is accessible and read out by the screen reader but combo,radioButton and checkbox are not read out by the screen reader as they are disabled. How do I make them accessible(to be read by screen reader). Is there any solution?

I found that in eclipse plugin.xml> Add org.eclipse.ui.editors >Open extension point schema, the radio button is disabled in this form editor and not read by screen reader. Is this a bug ? Is there any way to make these accessible and read out by the screen reader. Please do the needful.

Thank You,
Madhu
