FilteredLists and accessibility [message #482824] Fri, 28 August 2009 09:01

I am trying to get the Label preceding a FilteredList to be read out by
the JAWS screen reader when the list box is given focus by tabbing to it.
The default behaviour is for JAWS to read out the first item in the list.

I tried to override that behaviour by adding an AccessibleControlListener
to the FilteredList and provide an AccessibleControlAdapter and override
the getRole method to specifiy that this custom control should behave like
a Text widget like this:

public void getRole(AccessibleControlEvent e) {
e.detail = ACC.ROLE_TEXT;

Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug?
