<AWT Dev> [12] JDK-7124285: Nothing heard from VoiceOver regarding the status of the progress bar

SFAIK the intent of the demo is that the ProgressBar is not user 
adjustable so
why does it have to be focusable ?
It should not be possible to change its value directly, whether an AT is 
and you use the keyboard  or directly with mouse.

So does this change break that intent ? Why does it work (presumably)
with JAWS+AccessBridge on Windows ?
