Description Joanmarie Diggs 2015-08-31 23:52:55 UTC
Created attachment 118303 [details]
pyatspi accessible-event listener

Steps to reproduce:
1. Launch the attached pyatspi accessible-event listener in a terminal
2. Launch Writer
3. Type "hello world" and do NOT press return
4. Press Shift+End to select from the beginning of the line to the end

Expected results: A single object:text-selection-changed event

Actual results:
A. The expected object:text-selection-changed event
B. An object:state-changed:selected event
C. An object:selection-changed event
D. Another object:text-selection-changed event

B and C are appropriate for widgets; not paragraphs.

In particular, C is appropriate for parent widgets (Menus, list boxes, the Calc spreadsheet table*, and other widgets which have children and implement AtkSelection).

Similarly, B is appropriate for the selectable children of C (menu items, list items in list boxes, table cells in the Calc spreadsheet table*, and other descendants of widgets which implement AtkSelection).

* Hint: See bug 93825. :)
