Description Dattatray Bhat 2011-03-25 04:22:53 UTC
Created attachment 44846 [details]
queryCollection() called on document frame raises NotImplementedError.

A writer document does not implement the Collection interface of AT-SPI. If
implemented, assistive tools like Orca screen reader can make a writer document
more accessible. For example, Orca can provide structural navigation in Libre Office writer, as it does in a webpage.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Start Libre Office. Create a word processor document. Enter some content or
leave blank. Save the document.

2. Start Accerciser accessibility explorer. Go to the accessible tree view at
top left and navigate to the Document view object with role document frame.

3. Go to python console at left bottom. The command acc.queryCollection() gives
"NotImplentedError".

Marking as blocked for now. Work is being done to implement AtkCollection and/or improvements in AtkDocument. Once that work is completed, this work can begin.

Today I rechecked my observation with Libre Office dev 3.5.0 beta2 and found
that the bug persists. I suggest that the bug be moved back to NEW status.

The bug is real. I noticed it in version 3.3.0 and submitted it with a
supporting screenshot. I reconfirmed that the bug exists with version 3.5.0
beta2. It falls in the same category as bugs 35105, 35107, 35110, 35111, 35129
which you have reopened and changed to NEW.
Comment 9 Florian Reisinger 2012-08-16 11:40:43 UTC
Set status to NEW

No it doesn't.

While we need to have an AtkCollection (see my comment 1) which would be implemented in LibreOffice; LibreOffice is not the one to implement AtspiCollection.

I made a change in AT-SPI2 to implement the AtspiCollection interface for all containers and not just those which implement the document interface.

If you have done the work for implementing AtSpiCollection in ATK, could we change the subject to remove "blocked" ?
