In old help system, the <ahelp> tag is extracted at build time to be used by the user interface as tool tip for each widget.
The new help does not handle that, yet.
The content of <ahelp> should be available as tool tips in the UI dialogs. UI dialogs have provision to hold tooltips for each widget.
the <ahelp> tag is documented here:
So the task/enhancement is to have a script that extracts <ahelp> of a given dialog and add it to the corresponding .ui file.
This will have some impacts
- The UI will increase in volume of translation job, but
- ideally the translated <ahelp> should go too, to prevent re-translation.
Setting to NEW
The a11y impact is a more immediate issue.
