Description Heiko Tietze 2020-07-31 09:09:37 UTC
We should provide means for disabled people to work with the SI. That is first of all to switch to the deck per shortcut. A consistent proposal was made by Stuart in bug 99618 by using ctrl+alt+<number> for the decks. See also https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/99760 for the implementation. Secondly, we should allow screen readers to access the content. Not sure how much effort is needed for this. Basic interaction is per F6 to jump between interactive elements (menu, toolbar, sidebar, document), see https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Design/Guidelines/SideBar for the guideline.
