Hi, Jaffar. I did what you
said. I installed JRE64-bit. I copied the JAVA Access
Bridge.dll file to my System32 directory. When I went to
the commandline, and entered,
I received the same error,
'jabswitch.exe' is not
recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch
It appears that when I am
in commandline mode, the jabswitch.exe file, which is
is not in the path.
Hi Vaughan. I forgot to list one
more crucial step. I sent the missing procedure to Bill
White but here it is in case you miss it. After you
install Java, you need to navigate to your java\bin
directory. This can be typically found in your C:\Program
Files folder if you install Java 64Bit, or, C:\program
files (X86) if you have java 32Bit installed. Here's
where you have to pay particular attention.
If it is java 64Bit you have
installed, copy the WindowsAccessBridge-64.dll from the
Java\Jre\bin to your C:\Windos\System32 subdirectory. On
the other hand, if you have java 32bit installed, then
copy the WindowsAccessBridge.dll from your Java\Jre\Bin
directory to your C:\Windows\SysWow64 subdirectory. After
completing those steps, go to your command line and type
java -version to do an
installation check, then
jabswitch.exe -enable to enable
You might want to restart your pc
to ensure the windowsAccessBridge.dll is registered to
your pc before enabling accessbridge itself. Cheers and
let me know how it goes.

Great: thank you Jaffar.
Hope to make progress during
today using your instructions.
Hi. You first need to install
the Java runtime environment which you can get from the
oracle website. A search on google will yield you the
needed result. Choose the one for your windows
environment, 32 or 64bit. Install it as you would a
normal application or program. Once installed, go to
your command line.
Type the following to see if
you got the JRE correctly installed:
This will tell you if you got
the correct version installed.
If it is, then type the
You should here the message
telling you that the java access bridge has been
enabled. You should then be good to go. Write me
privately if you have any more concerns. Cheers!

I am not sure how to solve my
problem, but hopefully someone with more expertise
than I can point me in the right direction.
I am currently evaluating a
music library grooming application called Songkong. It
comes recommended by a specialist retailer of premium
When I load, it refers to
problems because Access Bridge is not installed. The
error reports this, so Windows is telling SongKong
that there is a screen reader.
Is Access Bridge a tool for
software developers, a utility for end-users or
something else. If I download it, what happens to
Jaws? Anything else that I should be aware of?
Thanks in advance.
