      Description

      JAWS fails to read the selected text value either in JTextField or JTextArea.
      I compared it with mac native application 'Notepad' and JAWS reads the selected value.

      Step to reproduce
      -------------------------
      1) Run the attached testcase
      2) Enable JAWS via bin\jabswitch.exe -enable
      3) Start JAWS
      4) Click on the test frame and start typing any characters
      5) Select all the characters in the JTextArea either by mouse or by key combination. If JAWS fails to read the selected text then the bug us reproduced.

      I compared the same on MAC + Voice over and it works as expected. I have attached the Screen Recording of the same comparing with native app 'NotePad'
