Do you have any additional accessibility options for blind people for Jira or SourceTree?

One of our developers is disabled and is having trouble with SourceTree and Jira.  He is using JAWS for accessibility.  Is there any additional help you can give us on these products from an accessibility perspective.

Hi Jeffrey,

Can you let us know exactly what trouble he's having when using JAWS with Jira and Sourcetree? I can see if it's an existing bug or if there's an alternative method.

Kind Regards,

The software we are using is JAWS 18 from freedomscientific (

I have four different options for mouse focus and none of them work with Source Tree.  Focus is an issue and even when I get focus labels and buttons are not properly defined.  I can't even get focus on the log in screen for the software. 

If you need  us to further discuss the problems, let me know.
