Not sure you'd have activated the Java dependent UNO Accessibility API on
Windows like that. Narrator uses the UI Automation API. Would still need to
activate the Java Accessibility API

To enable Java Access Bridge, run the following command (where %JRE_HOME% is
the directory of your JRE):

%JRE_HOME%\bin\jabswitch -enable

Alternatively, in Windows Vista and later, you can enable Java Access Bridge
through the Control Panel:

    Go to Start > Control Panel > Ease of Access > Ease of Access Center.
Alternatively, press Windows logo key+u to access the Ease of Access Center.
    Select Use the computer without a display.
    In the section Other programs installed, select the check box Enable
Java Access Bridge (you may have to scroll down).

Note: After enabling Java Access Bridge, you must restart your assistive
technology software and Java applications that use the accessibility API.
