Re: Filechooser accessibility


I'm no a11y expert, so don't quote me, but I think that the new file
selector should be quite accessible.

While there is no text entry box (which can be accessed using CTRL-l)
it's my understanding that it's supposed to (although I don't see it
happening for me) support type ahead text (like in Mozilla) for file
selection.  This should add much of the functionality of the text entry
box without and actually remove much of the possibility for errors when
typing paths.

Of course, this assumes that their is type addess text support.
