RE: [libreoffice-accessibility] LibreOffice Impress : Slide show mode with Orca seems not working


Hi, Alex,

I have never been able to use the slideshow mode effectively. I always had to export the slide shows to html and read it with a browser. Impress is very difficult to use with Orca and has been this way since forever. You sound like you may have a better idea of why it doesn't work well than most people I've encountered who run against this difficulty. Looks like filing a bug is the way to go although I've been using some form of Open Office/Libreoffice since 2010 and the problem was well-known and long-standing even six years ago. I would be flabbergasted to find out that absolutely no one who works with its accessibility was aware of the issue and that a bug hadn't been already filed somewhere. This is not new, folks.

Alex M

Did you search for an existing bug on this and/or did you fill a bug?

Are you willing to fix the bug? in that case, the best list to discuss about Orca's feedback should be UX/design list.

Cheers

It's up to you to help
