      Description

      When a user hits Ctrl-T (or Ctrl-Shift-T) to nagivate between links in an HTMLEditorKit JEditorPane, insufficient events are fired to indicate to an assistive technology that the user is moving between links, preventing the assistive technology from giving the user feedback that s/he needs. For example, a screen reader should speak the link string, a screen magnifier should move the magnified portion to the link boundary. This is not presently possible.
