Description Samuel Thibault 2018-09-10 15:56:27 UTC
As explained in https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/orca/issues/15 , it would be useful for screen readers to know when a dialog box is a wizard, to adapt heuristics differently for proper text reading.

Steps to Reproduce:
Start File->Wizards->Address Data Source

Actual Results:
Information visible in accerciser does not let screen readers know that this is a wizard

Expected Results:
There should be an accessible object attribute (e.g. is-wizard) set on the dialog box widget.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No
