Re: [libreoffice-accessibility] Re: Calc and Accessibility


Hi
Two things, first:
I noticed that after I enter a cells edit mode by double clicking the mouse and then escape, I actually get reports of cell coordinates and cell values when I use the arrow keys. I don't now exactly what gets initialized when I double click on a cell but I'll keep digging.

Secondly:
I did a patch for the problem with zero being announced and it has been pushed to master. It would be nice if somebody could verify that it actually works especially if you could test with another Windows screen reader than NVDA. Note that this is only pushed to master at this point. You can download and try out the patch here:
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/Win-x86@51-TDF/current/master~2014-10-19_01.56.13_LibreOfficeDev_4.4.0.0.alpha0_Win_x86_en-US_de_ar_ja_qtz.msi

The focus issue is still not fixed so you need to use the workaround to double click a cell and pressing the escape button to get announcements. But after that you should be able to test that cell content other than numerical values are presented correctly.

Let's keep our fingers crossed that we can nail this focus issue soon.

Niklas Johansson

Hi.  While pressing the f2 key in Calc does provide cell coordinates, pressing escape to return to 
the worksheet does not allow arrow keys to announce any cell info.  What is odd, if this will be of 
any help, is that OpenOffice works perfectly in NVDA.
I can also tell you that it is important that NVDA users enable the "report table cell coordinates" 
checkbox in the NVDA document settings checkbox.

Also when cells are empty NVDA sounds a Zero rather than blank--that is an NVDA issue.
Hm... I'm not so sure it is a bug in NVDA. I'd rather think that it is an issue in LibreOffice. It also seems 
related to the issue with only values being announced. I believe that a big part of the issue lies within the 
fact that the IA2 code from OpenOffice abuses the IAccessibleValue interface (that should only return 
numerical values) by returning string values as well. It also goes against OpenOffice/LibreOffice api 
(XAccessibleValue) which probably was "fixed"
on integration into LibreOffice leaving us in this unfortunate state of non working accessibility 
in Calc on Windows.
