Re: Testing A11y

 Hi Penelope,

I'm working on the AEGIS accessibility testing framework which will add some accessibility tests to the mago framework and execute these tests in a tinderbox (e.g. or we will have a Solaris tinderbox). The tests are designed to be cross platform and rely on correct implementation of atspi/pyatspi interface rather than on distro specific high level interface testing. I've just pushed an update which adds event driven testing using mago XML file such as:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<suite name="a11y generic application">
Registers test functions which will be invoked when certain events occur
<case name="Register Listener">
<description>Register for window create events</description>

It's at an early stage of development and so far I'm the only one working on it but its getting to a point where I'd like more people to use it, log bugs, contribute, critique...

You can find the current code here:

I'm interested in what works for Gnome and distros other than Ubuntu
for testing a11y.

We're really trying to figure out how to make it work, especially with
all the new changes coming in, but many of us can't break our systems
for a11y-related reasons (and don't have an extra machine) and we've
had trouble getting people without impairments to do testing because
they're worried they don't really understand what they're doing. I
figure we can't be the only distro where this issue comes up and I'm
curious how other distros and a11y groups deal with it.
