This issue regards accessibility. I'm posting on behalf of a blind user.

JAWS is screen reader.

The dialogue box that appears when closing the programme does not get read
automatically. So, only when the JAWS command for reading the current control is
issued, the control for either "save" or "discard" is read out correctly.
Ideally, the entire text of the dialogue box should be read out automatically.

Best regards,
Leif Lodahl

Will need testing with a current release of JAWS, but implementation of IAccessibile2 with the ia2 branch merge of the IBM Symphony contribution should resolve, see bug 107914
