Description Peter Parente 2006-09-08 18:55:24 UTC
The Fedora Bubbles and Bluecurve themes for the gdm greeter have accessibility
problems. More specifically, the username/password text field does not have the
ATK "labelled by" relation making it difficult for a screen reader to announce
the purpose of the text box to a blind user.

The plain, unthemed greeter correctly provides this relation. But since picking
an login theme requires admin priviledges, switching to the plain greeter is not
a solution for unpriviledged users.

Contact me if you need help using ATK to correct this problem.

Comment 1 Peter Parente 2006-09-08 19:50:52 UTC
On second look, this is problem probably exists not in the theme, but in the
gdmgreeter application. I'll close this bug and push for a correction upstream
at gnome.org.
