GNOME 3.6.2 and/or 3.8 updates
- Finally dash support on orca was accepted, and included both on master and gnome-3-6 branch.
- If nothing strange happens it will be available on 3.6.2 next week.
- Piñeiro agreed with Rui Matos and Daiki Ueno to have a 3.6.2 release of Caribou with the most critical stuff.
- An ugly Gtk+ crasher was found by a user and is now fixed by Cosimo (yay!) Should be included in GNOME 3.6.2. (See bug 687872.)
- Joanie did a small-but-big performance improvement for Orca's flat review which will be included in GNOME 3.6.2.
- Python 3 has been approved GNOME 3.8.
- Orca's been ready since before the 3.6 release, though Joanie is still finding and fixing the occasional bug.
- Speech-dispatcher and liblouis seem to be ready to go.
BrlApi is still being tested by Joanie. She submitted a tiny patch to the BrlTTY folks and is testing and bug fixing in Orca.
Closer ties with standards-writing groups (e.g. W3C)
- Joanie has been thinking for a while now that it would be good if the standard-definers/writers and the standard-implementors interacted more so that they each knew what the other was doing.
- Joanie (and other developers here) lacks the time to be "members in good standing" in W3C groups.
- Joanie would like to find some other way to coordinate better and share information.
Joanie notes that Joseph is here each week. And he serves on several(?) W3C groups.
- ACTION: Joanie will talk to the Board about GNOME joining the W3C.
- Joseph reported the following:
- The last ARIA meeting involved a group (of about 4 participants) working through the set of test cases.
- The point was to determine if the test cases were valid, fix them if there were not, and execute the test. ("Execute the test" means loading the test file into a browser, and running an accessibility inspector to see if the predicted result matched the actual a11y tree. The browers include FF, IE, Chrome, and Safari.)
- (detail) Joseph is concentrating testing FF on GNOME.
Juanjo has started a thread on the gnome accessibility mailing list to discuss about how to update the accessibility information from the GNOME web pages.
- Juanjo will write an article for the GNOME annual 2011 about the FoG Accessibility Campaign.
- Joanie will talk to the Board about GNOME joining the W3C.
Ongoing / Rolled-Over
- Team members:
- Do their Q3s
- (with Piñeiro) touch base to see if that evince a11y could be moved forward
- Draft the final Q2 report for the team and get Piñeiro's review.
- Do a full evaluation of the accessibility breakage in Evolution 3.6 and file bugs accordingly.
- Take a look at the current a11y material in order to make an action plan.
- Create some usability-configurability related bugs, using Bryen's mail as a starting point
- (with Joanie) touch base to see if that evince a11y could be moved forward
- List some of "touch-friendly" accessibility features (ie: possibility to define a gesture to control a11y features like zoom), and send it to design team(?)
- Investigate that "Enable by Keyboard" thing.
- Send a mail to bastien to know 1. if he has specific features for the bridge 2. if he plans to work on that.
Update the AtkObject:children-changed documentation, as this could be also used on ATK implementors.
