Description Samuel Thibault 2018-09-10 15:41:04 UTC
The background is solving https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/orca/issues/14 : text of wizards are getting spoken by screen readers, but the text of a button would be spoken first, even if it is in the middle of the text. That is because LO emits the focus event before the "active window" event

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open File->Wizard->Address Data Source

Actual Results:
the a11y focus event for the radio button is emitted before the "window active" event.

Expected Results:
the "window active" event should be emitted before the focus event, like other applications do.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

ATM (tested withLO the initial focus is apparently not on the radio buttons any more but on the step panel. Actually navigating with the keyboard from there seems just non-working, pressing tab does not bring to the radio buttons. This makes it really non-functional for blind people.
