Kelly,

Unless things have changed dramatically in the past couple of months, this
is an obstacle that is out of SSBTech's direct control.

IntallAnywhere, the third-party Java installer engine that is made by ZeroG,
has yet to implement swing. Unfortunately, their product has become the
defacto standard for Lava installation, because it can easily create
cross-platform installers.

Has anyone been able to get these programs to work with a screen
reader?  It seemed to me that they were in Java and even with all the Java
accessibility installed and the latest version of JFW I couldn't read
anything on the screen once I had these programs installed.
