Accessibility events missing from the file lists in Gtk+ version
|Reported by:||Joanmarie||Owned by:|
|Component version:||Operating system type:||Linux|
|Operating system version:|
Steps to reproduce:
- Launch Accerciser (http://live.gnome.org/Accerciser) and Filezilla.
- In Accerciser (please see attached screenshot)
- In the list of accessibles on the left, highlight the filezilla application
- In the notebook on the right, choose Event Monitor.
- In the Event Monitor, select the Selected application radio button.
- Press the Select All button to check all event types.
- Give focus a file selection list and arrow up and down.
Expected results: Some* event would be issued each time the selection changes to inform assistive technologies of this fact.
Actual results: No events whatsoever seem to be issued when the selection changes. As a result, *nix users who are blind cannot use Filezilla.
- Ideally the event would be object:state-changed:selected and/or object:state-changed:focused. Please see http://library.gnome.org/devel/atk/unstable/AtkObject.html#AtkObject-state-change.
I'm using Filezilla version 3.2.4 from http://wiki.filezilla-project.org/Unofficial_Binaries. Note that I started building the latest from trunk using the instructions for OpenSolaris on your wiki, but I was not successful. However, in looking at the list of changes on your wiki, I came across: http://filezilla.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/filezilla?view=rev&revision=3159. Therefore on a Ubuntu Jaunty box, I got the latest "Successful" nightly snapshot (2009-05-21). I'm still not seeing any accessibility events when the selection changes. :-( If I'm missing something, please let me know. Otherwise, thanks in advance for looking at this issue!
