    Nope, fortunately for you this is an Open-Source Project.  I'm
sure that a well done implementation of the javax.accessibility API's
for the JSVGCanvas (the class that presents the content graphically)
would be gladly welcomed.

    I will note that because the DOM viewer is provided in a standard
JTree (which _is_ fully accessible), you should have access to the
full DOM tree through the Accessibility APIs (this is all in theory
since I've never done anything with accessibility myself).
