Description zywek 2020-03-16 17:36:47 UTC
When i open a dialog, where i can insert a horizontal line, and modify the styles, Orca says nothing, but should say some attribute to insert where the focus is.

WHen pressing tab and shift tab, orca says a little part of attribute name, then stops saying.

I received informations, that it's a problem with emitting accessibility events on style selector dialog. It can be checked in accerciser, or another software, which making possibility to test accessibility in applications.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. OPen some document in libre office, then make a new line, and press f11
2. Press home to hear "Default style" or something about the default writing styles.
3. Press DOwn arrow

Actual Results:
Orca does not speak correctly the content of the style selector dialog

Expected Results:
Orca should say all informations about styles in the dialog.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

Additional Info:
I'm using a last version of orca from gnome git lab on archlinux.

I can't get orca to work for me on Arch Linux, but at least NVDA on Windows speaks the style names. I don't know, if by "all informations about styles in the dialog" you meant something other than the style names.
