So considering that, the solution should at least work in the usability scenarios across the platforms!!

No, instead he will use shortcuts of the VO, which will read content of all important accessible elements, even if the real UI components are non-focusable/non-editable.

Try this example:
         EventQueue.invokeAndWait(() -> {
             JFrame f = new JFrame();
             f.setLayout(new FlowLayout());
             f.add(new JLabel("text 1"));
             f.add(new JLabel("text 2"));
             f.add(new JLabel("text 3"));
             f.add(new JLabel("text 4"));
             JButton comp = new JButton("text 4");

How did you read the content of the labels and button using "tab"?

Best regards, Sergey.
