Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 191621
Insides of OpenOffice windows are not visible to the a11y framework
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:32 EST
Description of problem:
The various OpenOffice applications are only partially visible in the a11y framework
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Ensure a11y is enabled
* Go to the desktop Preferences menu -> Preferences -> Accessibility ->
Assistive Technology Support
* Ensure that the "Enable assistive technologies" checkbox is checked
* Restart desktop session if necessary
2. Install dogtail from Fedora Extras
3. Start "oowriter"
4. Run "sniff" (from dogtail), and try to find oowriter in the tree view
(i) The following is output:
GTK Accessibility Module initialized
** (swriter.bin:3434): WARNING **: unable to parse at-spi version number:
(ii) Within sniff the following hierarchy is visible:
+-- various apps
+-- swriter.bin (application)
+-- Untitled1 - OpenOffice.org Writer (frame)
+-- (untitled panel, with no descendents)
(i) We should see the "GTK Accessibility Module initialized", but the 2nd
message looks bogus.
(ii) There ought to be a complex hierarchy below swriter.bin, giving the full UI
of the program
Also seen with ooimpress and oocalc; looks like it affects the whole suite.
The a11y stuff is now the default upstream a11y solution, but they've added some
version checking stuff which isn't working. Have a simple workaround for this.
