Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 855822
Gnome-contacts a11y support incomplete.
Last modified: 2017-09-27 23:56:23 EDT
Description of problem:
Gnome-contacts does not provide useful at-spi a11y exports for its list of contacts. All that is provided are unnamed 'table cell' elements without any further information on which contacts are they actually containing. This reduces impaired person's (using i.e. ORCA to manipulate desktop) ability to make use of 'Contacts'. It also limits our ability to make automated test for gnome-contacts as we use at-spi based framework(dogtail) to do so.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install either dogtail or accerciser
2. Use sniff (dogtail) or accerciser to browse gnome-contacts' at-spi tree
3. Try to find any nodes labeled with names of contacts present
OR - attempt to use ORCA to manipulate/read contacts
Contact names should be exported together with the corresponding 'table cell' elements, although they are not.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in

this works well in 3.14

I am still seeing issues with RHEL-7.1-20150219.1 & gnome-shell-3.14.2-3. For example: if I edit a contact I hear "Page up" and click "Done," I hear the same thing.
This is a quick list I found of issues with Orca and Contacts:
Selecting toggle for all contacts (Checkmark), no feedback,
Selecting a Contact, "Edit," "Cancel" and "Done," are all "Page Up" in feedback.
In "Change Address Book" toggling between address books, no feedback.
I didn't notice anything else abnormal.
