Description V Stuart Foote 2013-11-19 00:53:14 UTC
Split from bug 71628

Using Windows 7 sp1 64-bit with NVDA and JAB active
Build ID: f99736820a23cb7e37139607713658dea1c69dd4

StartCenter -- the GTK+ UI widget implementation of mouse-over events are not firing an object focus event for the corresponding button object.

Expected -- a mouse movement firing a mouse over color flash should shift program focus onto the button firing an accessibility focus event. Keyboard and program focus should also follow the visual focus of a GTK+ widget button. 

Actual -- a mouse over color flash/change occurs and will retain visual focus, but keyboard and program focus will remain on a different GTK+ widget object.

Also, as no "tooltip" event is firing on mouse-over and the tool-tip is an important source of accessibility detail

Causes useability problems in that a keyboard enter/submit will assert on the wrong object. Also, an accessibility issue as focus events are not being fired leaving AT blind to GUI changes.

Commit http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=f655b23d57f234c0e92255302353f2a0a3fad487 resolves majority of this issue.

Believe additional work on the ThumbnailView list is needed to correct residual focus movement issues, see bug 73243. 

But closing this mouse-over issue as resolved fixed.
