Short Take: IBM helps Java programs talk

IBM has released tools to help programmers get Java programs to talk, making it easier to write software for people who are blind or have trouble reading. The company said its Self-Voicing Kit is available for free at its AlphaWorks site. The kit takes advantage of Java accessibility standards developed by IBM and Java inventor Sun.
