vnc menu tooltip not HIG compliant
Last modified: 2013-04-30 19:35:14 EDT
Description of problem:
According to GNOME HIG
menu tooltips writers should:
*) Phrase the tooltip as an imperative verb, for example "design", "write" or
*) Describe the most important tasks users can accomplish with your application.
vnc's menu entry tooltip "VNC client application" does none of that.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Hm. What exactly could be more descriptive? I think "VNC client application" is
one of the best descriptions...
Is "VNC client application" phrased as a verb? Here are some HIG compliant tooltips:
"Calculator" -> "Perform calculations"
"Text Editor" -> "Edit text files"
"Terminal" -> "Use the command line"
HIG says that the tooltip should be phrased as an imperative verb.
"VNC viewer" -> "VNC client application" is not phrased as an imperative verb.
The tooltip should be something like "Connect to a remote computer" or something
I've changed it to "Connect to VNC server and display remote desktop"
