Re: Re : [libreoffice-accessibility] Re: LO and Mac


Hi :)
I am mildly curious about how people work with screen-readers when they are
completely dependant on them.

I can often work without a mouse by using some keyboard short-cuts and
using tab to go through menus.  To some extent i've memorised some of 'the'
keyboard (thanks to Mavis Beacon and other touch-typing courses) so i could
probably find the tab key without needing to see it but a lot of times i
would be completely stuck

I was hoping that being on this mailing list might reveal some tricks that
a lot of people use but mostly it's been really technical stuff here.
No-one here seems to need or ask questions about just workflow or for hints
and tips, yet.  Maybe that will change once LO is easier to set-up for
accessibility, ie once java dependence is no longer an issue.

I've been quite glad to see the highly technical answers too, of course but
it's all just beyond me.  Luckily i've not had to set-up a system for
anyone needing it but i keep having little trial-runs at it.  One day i
should make a serious attempt and maybe then things will become a lot
clearer.
Regards from
Tom :)

Hi.

Thanks for this info. Actually I wonder how LO behaves with voiceover,
that is, is it possible to browse between toolbars, in the menus, the
dialogs, etc. For example, is it easy to handle styles and charachters
formatting?

The question is asked to me by a blind user to do tests. I am aware of the
lack of resource for this architectuure, but I wonder if someone tested
anyway;

Hi Jean-Philippe


Does someone is LibreOffice is accessible with VoiceOver as 4.3.4?


Accessible in which way ?

My recent testing of VoiceOver on OSX 10.10.1 and LO 4334 and master
build 4.5.0 alpha shows that it mostly works for announcing text
paragraphs from a pre-existing Writer document and using keyboard
commands to jump from one text block to another.

I haven't tested speech input, if that is what you are asking about.
There is an open, as yet unconfirmed, bug report that speech input
stopped working with LO 4.3.

The simple fact of the matter is that there are very few Mac QA testers,
and even fewer that use or need VoiceOver, one of the reasons being that
assistive technology tools tended to cause LO to crash in previous
versions, and thus general advice was to deactivate them when using LO.
