- As some already know, there is an running effort to define default values for GNOME shortcuts.
- Pinging GNOME designers about accessibility shortcuts was discussed in previous meetings.
- As email was not really productive, Piñeiro pinged them via IRC and got positive feedback from Allan Day. So yesterday he updated that wiki page with examples from a11y-custom distros, macos and windows.
As a reference, Piñeiro mentioned that defining GNOME equivalents for activating Orca and the ones defined on A-1 table here would be a starting point, and probably realistic for 3.8.
- ACTION: Piñeiro will ping GNOME designers about this wiki update.
Stuff we must do between now and code freeze
- Finally Piñeiro got gnome-shell master compiled. This can be complex during some periods of the cycle.
- Some of the UI, specifically application/folder search at the overview, have changed.
- ACTION: API will do a review with Orca to ensure that all the labels are in place, and probably a general review would be required.
- We also have a crazy Gtk+ text event flood -- only in gtk demo so far, but if it happens there it could theorhetically happen anywhere.
Joanie still needs to test Matthias' proposed patch for GtkNotebook.
- Joanie would like to see AT-SPI2 support for the new Atk get_locale()
There are also dead child nodes piling up in GtkTreeView
GNOME 3.8 Updates
- This week was 3.7.90 release. This means that officially some freezes started, specifically: UI freeze, API/ABI freeze.
- Next release (3.7.91) is in two weeks (so you only have one week to make changes).
- 3.7.91 means String Freeze.
- 3.7.92 will be on Mar 18, and means Hard Code Freeze.
- In the previous topic we listed the work we want to do between this week release and hard-code freeze, but in summary: bug fixing.
- Joanie added the profile-based language switching to Orca. This means that if a user sets up profiles for different languages and binds the command to cycle amongst profiles, he/she can quickly change Orca's language.
- Joanie still has nits, etc. to work out. But it's largely done.
- There is a lot of discussion in the IndieUI mailing list about user preferences/needs and how they could be used by a browser.
- These are coming, in part, from Cloud for all.
Interested parties should read the thread. It starts here.
- We should feel free to add to the discussion.

Ongoing / Rolled-Over
- 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.
- Take a look at clutter-gtk's accessibility support.
- Create some usability-configurability related bugs, using Bryen's mail as a starting point.
Update the AtkObject:children-changed documentation, as this could be also used on ATK implementors.
