Hi Jann,

Unfortunately Linux support is not in the plan for 8u40.

Windows 7 is supported and we have recently fixed JAWS support (see https://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-37530 and https://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-37609).
Unfortunately due to the 8u20 to 8u40 transition the code has not being released yet, but soon.

The majority of our testing was done using Narrator. That said, I also tested NVDA lastest version on Windows 8 and I didn’t see any major problems.
On the Mac we tested with VoiceOver.
