#4530 new Bug report

Accessibility events missing from the file lists in Gtk+ version

Reported by: Joanmarie Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: accessibility Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Linux
Operating system version:


Steps to reproduce:

  1. Launch Accerciser ( and Filezilla.
  1. In Accerciser (please see attached screenshot)
  1. In the list of accessibles on the left, highlight the filezilla application
  1. In the notebook on the right, choose Event Monitor.
  1. In the Event Monitor, select the Selected application radio button.
  1. Press the Select All button to check all event types.
  1. 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.

I'm using Filezilla version 3.2.4 from 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: 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!
