Description Alex ARNAUD 2017-08-08 10:17:05 UTC
Dear all,

On LibreOffice 4.2 (GTK2) and 5.4 (GTK3) on both Debian 8 and Debian Sid I've noticed that the orientation choice is not correctly labelled or not labelled.

Consequence: screen reader cannot present the "orientation"label to low-vision and blind people.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Orca (maybe this issue also exist on Windows with NVDA but I don't have Windows)
2. Open Format, Page
3. Tab 3 times to move on "portrait"

Actual Results:  
Orca only announces portrait without its label ("orientation")

Expected Results:
LibreOffice should present the label then the selected radio button.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
For proposed implementation see the mail of the Orca maintainer :

Best regards.

Confirmed also on Windows 10 Home 64-bit en-US with NVDA 2017.2 and
Version: (x64)
Build ID: 92c2794a7c181ba4c1c5053618179937228ed1fb
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 6.19; UI render: GL; 
Locale: en-US (en_US); Calc: group

This is on the Page Style dialog's Page tab, from the Paper Format block the Orientation controls are a pair of radio buttons: Portrait and Landscape, reached by <TAB> movement, with cursor <Up>/<Down> to switch between controls--keyboard navigation is correct. 

Seems simply that he text labeling of the accessible event omits the identification of the radio buttons as controlling the Orientation. Other widgets from the Paper Format block of controls include the field name with their description.
