Class Translator

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Accessible, AccessibleComponent

    public class Translator
    extends AccessibleContext
    implements Accessible, AccessibleComponent

    The Translator class provides a translation to interface Accessible for objects that do not implement interface Accessible. Assistive technologies can use the getAccessible class method of Translator to obtain an object that implements interface Accessible. If the object passed in already implements interface Accessible, getAccessible merely returns the object.

    An example of how an assistive technology might use the Translator class is as follows:

        Accessible accessible = Translator.getAccessible(someObj);
        // obtain information from the 'accessible' object.

    Note: This implementation is missing many things and is not a recommended way to implement accessibility features for a toolkit. Instead of relying upon this code, a toolkit's components should implement interface Accessible directly.
