Re: gnome-accessibility-list Digest, Vol 113, Issue 2



Hi Robert,

Thank you for your email. I have been working on implementing some new
features for the magnifier this summer (with the help of Joseph
Scheuhammer and the rest of the A11y team) that you may be interested in
learning about as a magnifier user. I will be emailing the list about
these improvements shortly to to explain and request feedback, but for
now, I will just try to help with your questions.

1. Is there some way to adjust the granularity of the keyboard shortcut
for the magnification?  200%, 300%, etc is too coarse.  I did see that I
could increment by 25% in the accessibility settings dialog but not with
the shortcut.  I do realize I could set the shortcut for something and
then use the on/off toggle to switch between but I don't always use the
same level.  If this is addressed somewhere else please point me in that
direction.

I am not sure how to answer this actually, I think it should be the same
so I will have to look into things and get back to you. Can you confirm
which shortcut you have been using to increase the magnification level?

2. Is there some way to create a keyboard shortcut for reverse video?
I don't need it all the time and going to the settings dialog every time
is a bit of a PITA.

If I understand what you mean by ┬┤reverse video' correctly, then there
is, yes. I have attached a photo of the dialogue you need to go to. This
dialogue is found in the keyboard settings of the control center. Please
let me know if I misunderstood what you were asking about or if it does
not solve things.

Best wishes,
Magdalen

Hello all,

I've just started using gnome 3, specifically 3.8.1, and I am a
magnifier user.  I have a few questions:

1.  Is there some way to adjust the granularity of the keyboard shortcut
for the magnification?  200%, 300%, etc is too coarse.  I did see that I
could increment by 25% in the accessibility settings dialog but not with
the shortcut.  I do realize I could set the shortcut for something and
then use the on/off toggle to switch between but I don't always use the
same level.  If this is addressed somewhere else please point me in that
direction.

2.  Is there some way to create a keyboard shortcut for reverse video?
I don't need it all the time and going to the settings dialog every time
is a bit of a PITA.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.  Again, if this is documented
somewhere that I've not been able to find via google, please point me in
that direction.

Best regards,
rdc
