I am trying to get java-atk-wrapper and OpenJDK8 working together with
the Orca screenreader. I have noticed that the following files exist in
I tried copying these files to /usr/lib/jvm/default/jre, but this seems
to throw errors and Orca won't read the application. I tried it with
jconsole, clion, and IntelliJ, all three were still inaccessible. Is

I am the Arch Linux packager for OpenJDK. I will look into it and
probably also adopt java-atk-wrapper as it is an orphan.
I have just pushed version 0.33.3 of java-atk-wrapper with split
packages for OpenJDK7 and OpenJDK8.
People using OpenJDK7 should just update their system.
People using OpenJDK8 should install java-atk-wrapper-openjdk8.
I have tested this with the SwingSet example available here  as
well as with JadX from our repos . Orca does speaks up these GUIs.
Friendly reminder: to setup Java ATK Wrapper, one needs to:
- configure the proper JRE with `archlinux-java`
- set `export _JAVA_OPTIONS="-Dassistive_technologies=org.GNOME.Accessibility.AtkWrapper"`
(append `-verbose:jni` for verbose output)
If you stumble on any bug with these, please open a bug report  and
assign it to me.
