Re: Intro and gnopernicus question

For an application to be accessible it must be a GNOME 2.x application.

I am not sure what the accessible state of mozilla is. I know that it is being worked on but I do not know whether the version you have is accessible.

I do not think that recompiling will help make applications accessible.

Just to confirm, enabling the accessability key worked just as you said.
Gnopernicus now speaks. Just one other question, do one need to
recompile the standard applications like mozilla before they will speak?
The things in the gnome desktop seems to talk, but none of the applications that i
have tryed does.
Most of them are not the very latest versions and are those that were installed
by rpm from Redhat 9.

Hi Willem:

I hope you have made some progress since your email on Thursday.  Note
that Mario's information is correct, you need to "turn on" accessibility
support in order to successfully use gnopernicus.  You can check to see
if accessibility is enabled at the system level by typing

gconftool-2 --get /desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility

The reply should be 'true', if not, then you can turn this configuration
option on with the following command (please note the command below
wraps over multiple lines in this email, enter it as one line)

gconftool-2 --set --type bool /desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility

Once you've turned this "key" on, you will need to log out and back in.

The information which Tatus forwarded concerns only the use of
"accessible login" work-in-progress, I suggest that you don't pay any
attention to that information yet since it doesn't directly impact what
you are doing now, it's only for people who want to make their graphical
login accessible, and as Brian indicated (who wrote the 'help'), that
feature is work-in-progress and requires considerable additional setup. None of the information in that second email should be required in order
to use gnopernicus once you are successfully logged in.

best regards,
