What kind of accessibility issues did you encounter? Are they related to
the user interface (for example dialogs where certain fields have no
label)? Are they related to missing access to accessibility features in
documents (for example, no access to the alternative text for an image)?
Does the keyboard get trapped in certain parts of dialogs?
Hello Christophe and all.
There are several kind of accessibility issues all around the suite. In example, it is not
possible to read a document from the beginning to the end using the appropriate Voice Over command:
the TTS stops reading after a paragraph. There is no way to know for sure if a page is complete
and a new one is beginning. Only basic text attributes are reported by the screen reader: in
example, I can find out if a text is bolded or underlined, but i have no way to figure out if it
is superscripted or not. If an image is present, Voice Over doesn't report it. I can create a
table, but I cannot explore it or even know that a table is present.
Format/character or format/paragraph are dialogs witch a VO user can understand with no little
difficulties. From a... blind point of view, :-) the options are grouped by category. There are
several buttons to select the options category you want to change or review. Ok, with Voice Over I
can access them, but the options and their parameters... that is a completely different story! I
cannot use standard VO movement commands, I have to use the tab key instead. But, if I do so,
Voice Over do not announce the controls' labels. And, even if I can change values in edit boxes and
check and uncheck check boxes, there are other controls I cannot access with the keyboard, in
particular pop up buttons. Some dialogs are a little bit confusing: when I explore them using VO
standard movement commands, the controls are reported in a meaningless order: in example, Ok and
Cancel buttons should be the last two controls within a dialogs; in some cases, they are not.
All that I am talking about is referred to Writer. Of course, there are a similar list of issues
for Calc and, if you want, we can discuss it.
Last but not list, I apologize for my horrible english. I do my best... and hope you'll
