Description am_dxer 2015-01-23 21:18:36 UTC
When opening the auto-correct dialog and moving to the options tabb orca has trouble reading the replacements and exceptions list box. I notice some checkboxes, however, orca does not tell me what these are when I use the arrow keys to move between them. It only announces the state of the control and not its label. I can see the labels by using the flat review function of orca, however, this isn't the most ideal way to know which setting is being changed.

Hello,
I am blind so it is hard for me to provide a screenshot. I can confirm that this still exists with latest master for both NVDA and Orca.
Steps to reproduce:
1: Open the tools menu and select the autoCorrect submenu.
2: Select AutoCorrect Options.
3: Select the Options Tab.
4: use arrow keys to navigate the checkboxes with NVDA and Orca. Observe that the state of the checkbox is announced but not its label.

screen clip of the Autocorrect Options dialog Options tab

Confirming on Windows as well

Windows 8.1 Ent 64-bit en-US with NVDA 2016.1 and
Version: 5.1.4.1 (x64)
Build ID: a4d48e4ff0e9f93e78b6356ca7b0b6303e360356
CPU Threads: 8; OS Version: Windows 6.29; UI Render: GL; 
Locale: en-US (en_US)

On the Tools -> AutoCorrect Options dialog, the "Options" tab table of check-box widgets (a column [M] for while Modifying existing text, and a column [T] for while Typing).  Just the first column check-box for the [M] label will sound. The second column [T] check-boxes do not sound nor do the lables as to the action--e.g. "Use replacement table", "Correct TWo INitial CApitals", "Capitalize first letter of every sentence", etc.

The "Localized Options" tab has the same sounding issues for the check-boxes and labels. But also no rendering of the "Single Quotes" and "Double Quotes" settings.

Dear contributors,

I can reproduce the bug on GNU/Linux.

Environment : 
- Debian Jessie (8.5)
- LibreOffice GTK2 5.1.3
- Orca 3.20.2

If you need more informations for testing, you can ask me here or on IRC.

Best regards.

So you can press up and down in the control but it stays in the [M] column and left and right should likely allow to switch to the [T] column.

The AutoCorrect dialog handling of the Options and Localized Options tabs remain inaccessible as described.

Sorry, I checked this just now with

On Widnows 8.1 Ent 64-bit en-US with
With NVDA 2016.1 and 

Version: 5.2.2.1 (x64)
Build ID: 3c2231d4aa4c68281f28ad35a100c092cff84f5d
CPU Threads: 8; OS Version: Windows 6.29; UI Render: GL; 
Locale: en-US (en_US); Calc: group

The Single Quote and Double Quotes substitution controls and the special character selection dialog are fully sounding accessible events to screen reader.

So this facet is correct.
Comment 12 am_dxer 2017-05-30 13:12:37 UTC
I tested this with old versions of OpenOffice and could reproduce it. My guess is that this never worked and so there is nothing to bisect. Does anyone else have comments on this?
Comment 13 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2017-05-30 19:19:23 UTC
@Maxim: Can you have a peek at svxcorelo-SvxCheckListBox and see what is possible to improve accessibility with this control.

Hello all,

I can always reproduce this bug on LibreOffice 6.2 daily build.

Best regards,
Alex.
