Just to add to this thread. We have been developing quite extensively over the last year and half with the understanding that JavaFx would be rehab compliant with the release of JDK 8 . At least that was the commitment during JavaOne 2012 conference. We are escalating this issue with local Oracle representatives and executive management to give this a higher priority. As a government agency we cannot deploy if the application is not 508 compliant. It is after all the law of the land. Any assistance from this community is appreciated.

There is nothing specific at this time and we are unlikely to start looking at accessibility seriously until next year.
