Control-center's main screen doesn't provide names of module icons for a11y
Last modified: 2013-12-12 13:12:00 EST
Description of problem:
The new gnome-control-center doesn't export names of its modules into the at-spi bus. The UI a11y tree contains three categories (Personal, Hardware and System) with corresponding module icons present, however these icon nodes lack the 'name' set to the module name seen on screen. This means that for example an impaired person using accessibility features would have problems opening modules from the main screen using their names (with voice recognition or otherwise).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the control-center and browse its at-spi tree using sniff(dogtail) or accerciser
2. Look for nodes that would provide the names of the modules on screen.
You'll be able to find the 'icon' objects, which however will be unnamed.
The 'icon' nodes are named according to modules they represent.
These 'icons' are likely custom widgets as usual gtk widgets do have a11y support well integrated.
gtk-demo has the same problem, so reassigning there.
we don't have a solution for accessibility of cell renderers upstream. this will not be solved in time for 7.0
