I was trying to run accessibility enabled applications
with wine. 
I was happy to find out that things like high contrast
viewing and keyboard shortcuts seem to work fine.

But screen readers like jaws fail. They seem to look
for certain desktop api's Like OpenInputDesktop and
OpenDesktop, which are stubs in wine.

Is somebody out there working on "windows station and
desktop api's" ? e.g. OpenInputDesktop()

Or, Do an alternative way exists for screen readers on
unix, and porting accessibility applications from
windows is not worthwhile ??

When thinking wont help, try twinking ;-)
