Dear LibreOffice community,
on the latest LibreOffice Impress release (5.1.4) the "Slide Pane" close button is not labeled so blind users (like me) cannot know the function behind this button without a sighted help.
FYI, the problem doesn't appear on the "Property Pane" close button.
On Windows 10 Pro 64-bit en-US with
Version: 184.108.40.206 (x64)
Build ID: fcbcb4963bda8633ba72bd2108ca1e802aad557d
CPU Threads: 8; OS Version: Windows 6.19; UI Render: GL;
Locale: en-US (en_US)
Confirming, the Impress menu View -> Slide Pane "Slides" panel, does not have a tool-tip assigned to its close button. Not unexpected, the same also for the Draw menu View -> Page Pane panel. No tool-tip for the close button of the Page Pane "Pages" panel.
The tool-tips are integral to providing Assistive Technology tools support and must be present for all GUI widgets.
@Jay: do you know if it is a complicated stuff ? Could you be able to resolved the issue yourself ? Can I add the easyhack keyword ?
FYI, I can reproduce the issue on LibreOfficeDev 6.0.

Assume it should be easy to fix, but definitely not something i could fix unless i was give some code pointers. @Stuart: Any ideas?
Takeshi Abe committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":

It will be available in 6.0.0.

I confirm the fix works on LibreOfficeDev 6.0 (2017-08-21) on Debian 8.9. Thank you very much Takeshi.
