8u20Fixed 9 b22Fixed
JAWS reads something unrelated to the "Uninstall out-of-date versions" dialogs when these dialogs are showed, the phrase ends with "javascraber.html", so seems like some JavaScrabber info stayed somewhere.
Neither dialogs' title nor text are read by default. When I click to the dialog text JAWS reads only first paragraph.
Verified this bug on 9 b20 PIT build. The bug has been fixed. The JAWS screen reader reads the titles and text.

This bug mentioned that JAWS screen reader is used. However, I cannot verified this bug, since JAWS is NOT a free software.

Steps to reproduce: 1. Runs JAWS screen reader 2. Install JRE 7u40 3. Launch JRE 8u20, accept defaults till "Uninstall out-of-date versions" dialog Expected: JAWS reads title and text Actual: JAWS reads something unrelated
