Description Alex ARNAUD 2016-07-06 17:14:49 UTC
Dear LibreOffie contributor,

I'm a blind person and I'm trying to use the "letter wizard" with the Orca screen reader.
I've noticed that all the form fields are not linked with their labeled, so the result is that I know I'm in a form field but I'm not able to know their associated label.

For example, in the first "Letter wizard" window, Orca says "Elegant combo box" without any mention of the label associated to this field.

Best regards.

Which LibreOffice version do you use?
FYI, last stable one is 5.1.4.

Dear Juline,

Sorry, I've forgotten to give you the version number. I'm using the latest fresh release (5.1.4) with the latest Orca version (3.20.2).

Best regards.

Thank you for your feedback Arnaud (sorry for the delay, I was in vacation).

Reproduced in LibreOffice 15.10. Also reproduced with version, probably inherited from OOo.

There are more fields like this in the wizards, for example the Fax wizard's page design combo box, so whoever fixes this should do a general check among them.
