Hi all. The Pangu jailbreak tool for jailbreaking iOS 7.1 and 7.1.1 has been updated. There are now English language versions for both Windows and Mac.
I haven't ran a jailbreak yet, but I have opened the tool on my Mac and it does appear to be accessible with VoiceOver.
The check-box for removing the Chinese pirate repo is gone, and according to iPhoneHacks this is because that has been removed from the jailbreak altogether which is good.

Pangu version 1.1 for Windows, while not truly something I would call accessible, is usable without sighted assistance. The controls will not be read aloud if you tab, but using the JAWS cursor it is possible to read all necessary information and click on the jailbreak button. Since the progress bar is a fancy thing that isn't noticed by JAWS you'll have to rely on the text in the Window and the sounds of your iOS device to know what is happening.

Hi. I press caps lock P to bring up the JAWS cursor, down errow to where it says jailbreak, then tried both the right mouse, shift+alt+right errow, and the left mouse, shift+alt+left errow. I waited a long time and nothing happened on the iPod or the computer. Please help. Thank you.

Hi. I figured out how to make it work on Windows. After launching Pangu, give it a few seconds to make sure it is loaded, then press caps lock p to activate the JAWS Curser, then down arrow to the jailbreak button, then press shift enter. After that, use the arrow keys to read the text and when it tells you to, click the new Pangu icon on your iOS device, after that, use the arrow keys again to read the text and it will say done when it is done.
