Yesterday, I commented out the patch which disabled the Java
Accessibility bridge in the OpenOffice.org 1.9.x builds, so it will be
included in the next uploadn to experimental. Whether it actually will
work I don't know but I would imagine it at least does with
Suns/Blackdowns JDK.
For gcj, well I don't know (and didn't try) yet..

Some people also are working on atk-based Acessilibity for
OpenOffice.org but I don't know the actual state of this.
