I'm helping a colleague review the renewal of our campus MatLab contract.
The product doesn't seem to be at all accessible. (I did see some
documentation on how to set it up with the Java accessibility bridge to
make it more JAWS accessible but this seems like quite an involved task -
and not sure how well this approach works).

I'd be interested in hearing how other campuses have dealt with this - have
they found alternatives or is this software, such as with CAD, where you
simply accept that it's inaccessible. Any feedback on this would be
