Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 203806
ESC needs A11Y hotkeys
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:33 EST
Description of problem:
Apparently no hotkeys in ESC. This is problematic, as it requires people to use
the mouse when they might otherwise not want to do so. If nothing else, it's
unkind to those with repetative stress problems. (If there _are_ hotkeys
available, please underline the key in question, so that it's obvious that alt
and the key will cause things to happen)
Similarly, if in the 'TPS config info' screen, it does not automatically put the
cursor in the text box. This means both that one must select it initially, and
one must select it again if one alt tabs to another window and back again.
Again, bad for ergonomics.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
After some research this feature will be easy to implement using the XUL
"accesskey" attribute of the UI elements.
Hotkeys is not a beta blocker, I don't believe....
per last bug council on 11/17, I asked bob lord for input.
and he is ok with moving this bug to RHEL 5.1.
per the last bug meeting, we decided this would be targeted in the rhel 5.1
This bug was proposed for RHEL 5, but wasn't resolved in time.
devel_ack+ for RHEL 5.1.
Locally have progressed to where the following screens have hot keys:
Smart Card Manager Page
Phone Home Config Page
Remaining ESC dialogs now have hot keys.
Fixed in esc-1.0.0-21.el5 .
I've done a build in brew esc-1.0.1-3.fc7 which should have the underlined hotkeys.
1. Navigate the various local ESC UI pages.
2. Note that the hot keys are present and operational.
Thanks for the catch. What we did with the cert viewer was to re-use and
minimally modify some Mozilla code.
Fixed for RHEL5.1 but will open a separate bug for 'View Certificate' problem.
verified on x86_64. rhel5.1-client-snapshot#6
