The Java Control Panel has a security slider. When moved from bottom to top JAWS doesn't say Medium, High, Very High. What is heard is 0% 0 for Medium, 50% 1 for High, and 100% 2 for Very High.
This can't be fixed because there is no solution via the Java Accesibility API. AccessibleValue only provides Numbers, not Strings. I talked to Freedom Scientific about adding a new API, e.g. AccessibleExtendedValue returning Strings but they don't have resources to change their code to add support for such a new API.
The alternative is to change the dialog to use a group of 3 radio buttons.
