Sounds very sensible. Having the same gesture would be very handy so you
could start it later in a session if you wanted or on a Live CD which
doesn't use a log-in screen. I'd also like to see a gesture for
magnifier and and sticky keys (the OSK might be better started from the
menu, though a GDM mouse gesture would also be invaluable for that).
Hi Al, Henrik, gang,
I think the ideal thing - which we never managed to figure out - is to
have a keystroke at the gdm login screen invoke the screen reader (and
other gesture invoke other AT), which is they carried over to the user's
session. When done this way, at-spi could be loaded for that session,
and the same AT they launched carried over.
The trick is figuring out a way to communicate that information... Of
course, that same gesture would ideally be the desktop gesture as well.
I wonder if the new patches we are applying to resolve the sudo/at-spi
issues brings us closer to having GDM gestures.
I can talk to our Gnome guys about some simple keybindings for Edgy (Al,
I take your point that it would be helpful), but we should also spec
this out properly for Gnome 2.17/Edgy+1 (and let's try to get the exact
same gestures into KDE4 !).
