Description Samuel Thibault 2018-02-28 17:06:13 UTC

From writer, using File -> Wizards -> Address Data Source opens a wizard dialog box. Using the tab key there only allows to move between the Steps board and the Help/Cancel buttons, one can not reach the radio buttons (Firefox vs Thunderbird vs others) without using the mouse, which is of course a no-go for blind people.

This is the only wizard which has this problem, others are fine. This is also apparently the only wizard whose panels have been written as a .ui file :) Perhaps there is something missing in the .ui file, or at the interface between the .ui file and the wizard global machinery (which is not a .ui file)?

I can confirm with Version:

CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.4; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3;

This is still a concern with Libreoffice

I can now navigate with Tab in the wizards main and navigation buttons area. 
This seems to have been fixed in 6.4 with:
