Description Sebastian von Kracht 2017-11-10 10:37:26 UTC
Using the „Find“ function with „Find All“, a list of all matches in the document, ideally with some surrounding text, would be greatly appreciated. A click in the list should navigate to the corresponding position in the document.

Comment 1 Kevin Suo 2017-11-10 11:39:32 UTC
When doing 'Find All', a box is show with 'Search Results'. Am I missing sth?
Comment 2 Dieter 2017-11-10 18:23:13 UTC
I don't get a box. Do you use some special settings or experimental mode? Can you add a screenshot of that box?

Comment 4 Thomas Lendo 2017-11-14 15:13:28 UTC
In Calc, a "Search Results" dialog window opens after clicking the "Find All" button. Writer don't have this dialog window.

For blind and visually impaired users it is very important that after a search the number of hits can be displayed directly and can also be accessed. Unfortunately, the solution via the status bar does not work because the status bar cannot be read out by the screen reader NVDA (see https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=137075 and https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/11698).
It would be best if the hits were displayed in a list that can be operated with the arrow keys and that the hit is displayed including its sentence context so that it is easier to orientate oneself in the text.
