I'm trying to find some programming guide style documentation for Draw2D accessibility but cannot find it. In particular, I have some plugins which use Draw2D to draw a graph which has a toolbar that is composed of Toggle objects. I need the Jaws screen reader to speak some descriptive text when the user tabs or steps thru those toolbar buttons. I also need to be able to have Jaws speak some descriptive text when the user navigates to the outer container for the graph itself.

I've experimented with extending the LightweightSystem and SWTEventDispatcher classes to set up my own implementation of AccessibilityDispatcher, which I've made some progress on, but I'm not sure that this is the way to do it.

Is there any documentation which explains how to implement accessibility for Draw2D, and if so, where do I find it?

This needs to be for the previous (non-JavaFX) Draw2D since I cannot use JavaFX.

I fear there is not really much documentation related to it. The IBM redbook provided at has a short section on Accessibility, but apart from this I am not aware of any documentation.
